Head of Libya's Government of National Unity (GNU) Abdulhamid al-Dbeibah announced on Monday reopening the land border crossing with Sudan.

He pledged to provide infrastructure to improve the economy between the two countries.

The announcement came during the opening session of the Libyan-Sudanese Economic Forum, which kicked off its activities on Monday in Tripoli under the title “Free Zone for Transit Trade.”

Dbeibah affirmed that Libya will work on developing the economic cooperation with all neighboring countries, especially Sudan.

He further underscored the importance of developing bilateral economic cooperation and holding a joint ministerial committee meeting.

Dbeibah later invited Chairman of Sudan’s Transitional Sovereign Council Abdel-Fattah al-Burhan and the Sudanese Prime Minister to visit Tripoli.

Separately, Dbeibah ordered the establishment of a body independent from the Health Ministry to follow up on oncology centers and help organize and secure the needed medicines.

He held an expanded meeting to discuss the matter with Health Minister Ramadan Abu Janah, the directors of oncology centers, the head of the Medical Supply Authority, and the director of the National Center for Decision Support.

The meeting touched on the challenges and obstacles facing the body and preventing it from carrying out its tasks, as well as the work mechanism of the medical centers.

He underlined the need to find radical solutions for the work of the centers, provide organized services to patients, and work according to an electronic system.
