Libya to reopen border with Sudan


Head of Libya’s Tripoli-based unity government, Abdul Hamid Dbeibeh has announced the reopening of border with Sudan.

Addressing an economic forum in the Libyan capital, Dbeibeh explained that the move will help resume the movement of goods and people between the two countries.

“The closure of the border between Libya and Sudan was something strange, and a move that we don’t accept,” Dbeibeh said.

It should be recalled that Libya’s border with Sudan was shut in January by orders from Libyan warlord Khalifa Haftar, citing threats from Sudanese militias active in the border area between the two countries.
