  • Tribes in eastern Libya announced they would allow oil production from fields they control to start again, shortly after the state energy company said negotiations between the U.S. and regional governments could lead to a resumption of exports from the war-battered OPEC member.
  • The announcement came after the state-run National Oil Corp. said it was in talks with Libya’s UN-recognized government in Tripoli, the U.S. and some Middle Eastern powers.
  • Turkey intervened on behalf of the Tripoli government of Fayez al-Sarraj and pushed Haftar’s forces back toward Sirte.
