Deputy Chairman of the Presidential Council, Abdul-Salam Kajman, held discussions on Wednesday with the Chairman of the General Electricity Company in Libya (GECOL), Abdul-Majeed Hamza, regarding the repercussions of the abduction of the four foreign workers at the new Ubari gas-powered power plant.

Those present at the discussions also took into consideration the many obstacles facing GECOL in terms of financial procedures as well as estimating the difficulties in completing future projects contracted with foreign companies.

During the meeting, which was held at the Prime Minister's Office, Kajman expressed his concerns at the kidnapping of the four workers from Turkey and South Africa, which caused the delay in the completion of the power plant and exacerbated the deficit in the electricity grid, especially in the southern region.

Kajman stressed the importance of communication with the local people of the area where the incident occurred and future cooperation with them to help return the abductees.
