Oil Minister Demands Ports Reopened by Force

The Minister of Oil and Gas, Dr. Abdulbari Alarusi [Al Arusi], has called for force to be used to reopen oil ports that were seized by a group demanding greater autonomy for the country’s eastern region.

He told Reuters:

"The ports have been closed for five months; in my opinion, force should be used to reopen them."

and added that the Marsa al Hariga port was expected to resume operations in the near future:

"We have a lot of storage facilities there and I expect that it will reopen soon."
