Prime Minister Abdul Hamid Dbeibah and the Chief of Libya's Army, Lieutenant General Muhammad Al-Haddad, met on Wednesday to discuss the financial conditions of military members, including salary payments, settlements of fiscal status, and the unified salary scale.
The meeting was joined by Finance Minister Khaled Al-Mabrouk and Minister of State for Cabinet Affairs Adel Jumaa, in addition to administrators at the General Staff.
Dbeibah urged the relevant authorities to give speedy attention to the military establishment in all aspects to enable it to play its role effectively.
On his part, the Minister of Finance said they completed all financial procedures related to the military employees' position and the unified salary scale for the Ministry of Defence staff.
Discussions also covered the conditions of retired military personnel, including coordination with the Social Security Fund in this regard.
Recently, Dbeibah made the army a priority for his government's policy and gave instructions to address the concerns of the military staff.
The government formed a committee to develop solutions to the deficit in military retirement benefits accumulated for more than 20 years due to the non-settlement of financial and legal conditions of many army members.
Vice President of the Presidential Council, Abdullah Al-Lafi, had also stressed the need to find an implementable mechanism to address the pensions of military retirees.
