Libya, UAE to cooperate in oil sector

The Libyan National Oil Corporation (NOC) chairman  Mustafa Sanallah met with His Excellency Dr Sultan Ahmed Al Jaber, United Arab Emirates Minister of State and Group CEO of the Abu Dhabi National Oil Company (ADNOC) in London yesterday. The two parties discussed mutual cooperation and the international community’s approach to Libya, including the protection of legitimate institutions, such as NOC, in accordance with the rule of law.
