Libya has said its oil production risks being reduced to just 72,000 barrels per day from the previous 1.2 million bpd unless the international community acts to end a blockade of its ports and oilfields by the self-styled Libyan National Army (LNA) led by renegade general Khalifa Haftar.

“The international community has to understand that if it rewards, or even tolerates, those who break the law in Libya, then it will be complicit in the end of the rule of law in our country,” Mustafa Sanalla, chairman of state-owned National Oil Corporation (NOC) said in a speech in London.
