The British newspaper ‘The Guardian’, confirmed that the United Kingdom is set to reduce the aid package it provides to Libya by 63%, indicating that a leaked report obtained by the newspaper revealed that the British Foreign Office had discussed, over the past three weeks, the reduction of assistance provided by it to poorer countries and those in conflict or war.

The reduction by more than half was taken due to the effect of the Coronavirus pandemic on the British economy, forcing it to make difficult decisions in these trying times.
