The US Embassy issued commentary on its Facebook page. The statement notes that the US and 20 other countries at a recent Vienna meeting affirmed that the Central Bank of Libya(CBL), National Oil Corporation (NOC) and Libyan Investment Authority (LIA) must function under the sole stewardship of the GNA and are the only national banking institutions under GNA stewardship.
The statement went on:
[su_quote]The CBL headquartered in Tripoli is the only national banking institution acting under the GNA’s stewardship. UNSCR 2259 called upon all UN member states to cease support to and official contact with parallel institutions.[/su_quote]
