Ambassador Norland’s call with the Minister of Defense

In a call today, Minister of Defense Salahedin Al-Namroush confirmed to Ambassador Richard Norland and the U.S. Defense Attaché that progress is being made on reopening the coastal road, as called for by the Joint Military Commission, and on avoiding a shutdown on exports from some oil terminals as a result of salary issues involving petroleum facilities guards. The Ambassador congratulated the Minister and all Libyans on progress in the LPDF in Geneva toward naming a new interim executive in the coming days.
