Six countries issue joint statement on Haftar's seizure of 4 oil ports
The governments of France, Germany, Italy, Spain, the U.K. and the U.S. issued a joint statement condemning the seizure of the four oil ports, Zuwetina, Ras Lanuf, Es Sidra, and Brega by forces of the Libyan National Army (LNA).
