BENGHAZI, Libya, April 20 Technical problems are
delaying the reopening of Libya's eastern Zueitina oil export
port after the government reached a deal with rebels to end a
blockage of the terminal, its justice minister said on Sunday.
"There is some damage (at the port) due to the long
closure," Salah al-Merghani told a televised news conference
from the eastern city of Benghazi.
He gave no date for the resumption of oil exports from the
70,000 barrels-a-day port, adding that talks to reopen the
larger Ras Lanuf and Es Sider ports would only start after the
restart of Zueitina.
