Turkey upset by Sarraj's plan to step down in Libya, Erdogan says

4 2020 Libyan Prime Minister Fayez al Sarraj holds a joint press conference at the

"We are ready to open oil fields, to secure the future of Libya, for one month", Haftar said in a statement distributed by his spokesman after a brief televised broadcast in which he announced that it had "been decided" to resume oil production.

Libyan forces allied to the country's eastern-based government will allow production and exports of oil to resume under a framework for sharing of revenues with the rival government in Tripoli.

In his short speech, khalifa Haftar said that "the command" of his forces "puts aside all military and political considerations" to respond to the "suffering" of Libyans and the deterioration of living conditions in this country which nevertheless has the most abundant oil reserves in Africa.

Libya is split between the internationally recognized Government of National Accord (GNA) in Tripoli and Haftar's forces in the east.

According to the head of the Tripoli-based National Oil Corporation, Mustafa Sanallah, the firm would not lift force majeure, a legal maneuver that lets a company get out of its contracts because of extraordinary events, until until Kremlin-backed mercenaries leave the oil fields and export terminals.

The committee would coordinate between the two sides to prepare a budget and transfer funds to cover payments and deal with the public debt, he said.

Big Ten Conference reveals full schedule with unusual tweaks
For any team contending for a spot in the College Football Playoff, missed games could hurt their resume. The Terrapins' schedule includes another cross-division game at home against Minnesota .

President Tayyip Erdogan said on Friday that Turkey was upset by news that Libya's internationally recognised Prime Minister Fayez al-Sarraj wants to quit by the end of October.

Earlier this month, they held talks in Switzerland during which they agreed to hold elections within 18 months and restructure the government.

Libya had caused earlier losses but Friday's largely positive settlement was said to be due to Saudi Arabia hinting they're prepared for new production cuts and criticizing members of the Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC) that have cheated on production quotas. Police officers fired live ammunition to disperse them in Al-Marj, leaving at least one dead and several wounded, according to witnesses and the United Nations mission in Libya.

Libya has been mired in conflict for almost a decade since the 2011 NATO-backed uprising that toppled and killed veteran dictator Moamer Kadhafi.

Foreign militia and groups loyal to Haftar - backed by Russian Federation and the UAE - have closed Libyan oil fields and facilities since January 17. Deputy Prime Minister Ahmed Maiteeq, who is often at odds with Sarraj, had made the agreement last week at a meeting in Sochi, Russia, with Haftar's son and representatives from eastern Libya.
