The Minister of Economy, Ali Al-Issawi said that economic relations with all countries will be reassessed, especially those who have supported the aggression of Haftar on Tripoli.

"The Libyan economy has succeeded in passing the first shock of Haftar's aggression," Al-Issawi told the news conference in Tripoli, emphasizing that the files of the displaced and wounded have weighed heavily on the state's budget, according to him.

Al-Issawi clarified that around 14 thousand projects were suspended since 2011, estimated to be worth more than 140 billion dollars.

He also indicated that war has affected the investment projects planned by the government in the field of iron-ore, seaports, and power plants, according to him.
