BENGHAZI, Libya (Reuters) - Libya sees “good intentions” at ongoing talks with eastern rebels which might lead to the lifting of their blockage of major oil ports within days, acting oil minister Omar Shakmak said on Thursday.

“There are good intentions,” he told reporters in Benghazi, adding that tribal leaders and local leaders were working hard to mediate.
