Italian energy company Eni said it has decided to withdraw all its Italian national staff from Libya, confirming the evacuation of Italian employees from Al-Wafa and El Feel oilfields, as well as the capital Tripoli.

The Italian Foreign Ministry said that the step was taken in coordination between the two countries, while it has not confirmed yet the withdrawal of its diplomatic staff from its embassy in Tripoli, despite all European diplomats are present in Tunisia.

"The situation in the oil facilities in Libya are under control and the company is following development on the ground closely," Eni Spokesman said.
