“Al-Thinni immediately called the Chairman of the Benghazi-based National Oil Corporation, Al-Naj Al-Magherbi, and told him to visit Egypt and deliver the free Libyan oil offer to the government. “ He indicated.
He also told the channel that Egypt has never left them and has always been the shelter for Libyans whenever any crisis happens in the country.
Dugheim als mentioned that the Khalifa Haftar-led Dignity Operation forces, which he called the Libyan National Army, have their grip on 80% of the Libyan soil and 95% of the Libyan resources.
Similarly, in an earlier interview by phone with the Egyptian channel, CBC Extra, The legal adviser of the leader of Dignity Operation, Khalifa Haftar, Saleh Abdelkareem, said that a plan to export oil to Egypt by the Egyptian pound was presented to the Tobruk-based House of Representatives and its Transitional Government of Al-Thinni, as well as the parallel National Oil Corporation and the Governor of the parallel Central Bank of Libya, Ali Al-Hebri.
“We want to help Egypt receive our oil and not be obliged to buy oil by dollar or other foreign currencies. Egyptians must benefit from the Libyan oil.” Abdelkareem bluntly told the CBC Extra.
