Libya to honour contracts with Russia
In an interview with the ITAR-TASS news agency Friday, interim Libyan Prime Minister Abdel Rahim Al-Keeb assured Russia that his country would honour all the contracts that it signed with Russian companies in the era of Muammar Gaddafi. He said Libya would welcome the return of Russian companies.
On the ground, meanwhile, there are growing signs of national disintegration. Earlier this week, the oil-rich eastern region of Cyrenaica with the seat in Benghazi declared itself semi-autonomous, and Libya’s third biggest city Misurata in the west imposed restrictions on the entry of Libyans from elsewhere in the country.
