Minister Mohamed Aoun of Oil and Gas received on Tuesday OPEC's Secretary General, Haitham Faisal Al-Ghais.

The visit comes at the invitation of the Ministry of Oil and Gas to discuss issues related to the oil sector, given that Libya is a key partner for the organization, a readout by the ministry said.

It may be worth noting that Kuwaiti’s Haitham Al-Ghais was unanimously picked by member nations for a three-year term at a meeting in January 2022.

He succeeded Nigerian-born Sanusi Barkindo, who later died while on a visit to his homeland in July 2022.
