Libyan militia agrees to give up 4 oil terminals

07 April 2014, 17:36

Tripoli - The official Libyan news agency says the country's main militia in the east has agreed to hand back control of four oil terminals it captured and shut down last summer in its demand for a share in oil revenues.

The shutdown has cost Libya millions of dollars.

LANA quoted Justice Minister Salah Margani as saying the government reached a deal late Sunday with representatives from the east.

Under the deal, the militia would immediately hand over the terminals of Zuwaitina and al-Hariga. Two other oil terminals, Ras Lanouf and Sidrah, would be returned to government control in two to four weeks.

LANA says the deal was signed by Ibrahim Jedran, head of a movement demanding more autonomy for eastern Libya, where most of its oil resources are located.
