Tripoli, 11 August 2016(Lana) Six western countries including Britain, the United States and France have expressed concerns Wednesday about mounting tensions around the key Libyan oil terminal of Zueitina. The Six countries which also included Germany, Italy and Spain, have called in a joint statement published here on Wednesday for control of all oil facilities in Libya to “be transferred and without preconditions or delay back to Al Saraj-led legitimate Government of National Accord (GNA). The statement called for “all parties to refrain from hostilities, and to avoid any action that could damage or disrupt Libya’s energy infrastructure”. The six countries expressed particular concern about “reports of increasing tension” near Zueitina, one of Libya’s largest oil facilities on the Mediterranean coast about 900 kilometres east of Tripoli. ‘It is in the interests of all Libyans that they fully support the efforts led by the GNA to provide these key services to the Libyan people’, the statement said. =Lana=
