Member of the High Council of State, Abdul Rahman Al-Shater, said that the Presidential Council is unable to find solutions to end the conflict in the oil crescent region.

In a televised statement, Al-Shater explained that the President Council cannot mandate a neutral force to protect oil ports because it's a "disabled body," while the High Council of State is an advisory body and can provide nothing but advice.

Al-Shater described the conflict in the oil crescent as a conflict between two thieves; both threaten the Libyans’ wealth, only one claims to fight tyranny, while the other alleges to combat terrorism.
