The Special Representative for the Secretary-General of the United Nations in Libya, Stephanie Williams, said that the unification of the oil facilities guard after years of division is part of the economic course of the Libyan dialogue process approved by Berlin conference and complements the agreement of the Joint Military Commission, expressing happiness to unite the work of the agency charged with protecting Libya's wealth.

"What we are dealing with now is a continuation of the agreement of the Military Ceasefire Commission signed on October 23 in Geneva, the meetings that took place in Ghadames and also at its permanent headquarters in Sirte," Williams said at a press conference in Brega, following a meeting of the Committee on The Restructuring of The Guards of Oil Installations.

Williams noted the "launch of the project to secure an oil field through the Protection Force" in one of the oil areas, where the secured field is expected to resume oil production from the field in 2021, noting that today's meeting will be completed soon "at the technical level."

Williams stressed that "the United Nations supports oil companies that contribute to oil production and also supports Libyan sovereignty", and stressed that the mission is working to provide support to unify the guards of the facilities after the division witnessed in Libya in the past years, expressing the happiness to unite the work of the agency in order to protect Libya's wealth.
