The European Union condemns illegal sale of crude oil

The European Union (EU) has condemned the illegal sale of Libyan crude oil by the country's militias. In a statement, the EU spokesperson in charge of foreign affairs and security policies, Michel Man, urged the international community not to buy illegal crude oil.

He said the armed groups that control Libyan oil fields do not have any international support.

Libyan soldiers and allied militias on Monday evening seized a tanker loaded with crude oil that a separatist militia was attempting to export in defiance of the country's central authorities.

According to the Libyan news agency, the North Korean tanker is under control at Al-Sedra port.
