The Director of the Middle East Department at the British Foreign Office, Stephen Hickey says the UK welcomes the resumption of Libyan oil exports considering it a step towards stability in Libya, according to a statement by the Government of National Unity media office on Wednesday. 

Prime Minister Abdul Hamid Dbeibah received the UK diplomat at his office on Wednesday, accompanied by the British Ambassador Caroline Hurndall and the military attaché at the embassy, ​​Chris O'Flaherty.

Hickey expressed concern about the escalation of violence after a relatively stable period, reaffirming the UK's support for stability in Libya.

For his part, PM Dbeibah reiterated that the solution is to head directly to elections and pressure the concerned parties to issue the constitutional basis so that the government can play its role in this regard.

The PM praised the UK's "positive role" in the Libyan crisis and emphasized the need to strengthen relations between the two countries in various fields.
