Joint statement by the embassies of France, Germany, Italy, the United Kingdom and the United States

The embassies of France, Germany, Italy, the United Kingdom and the United States urge all actors to respect the unity, integrity, and independence and preserve the apolitical, technical nature of the Tripoli-based National Oil Corporation (NOC), whose continued, uninterrupted operations benefit all Libyans.  We appreciate NOC’s commitment to improve financial transparency and we caution against acts that undermine the NOC, in line with multiple UN Security Council Resolutions, 2571 (2021), 2441 (2018), 2259 (2015), and 2146 (2014), and underscore the need to avoid such actions that may pose a threat to the peace, security and stability of Libya.
