The coastal road had been closed for more than two years due to the armed conflict.
Local media noted that the minister’s call is part of the Government’s efforts to make progress in the transition towards the announced elections scheduled for the end of this year.
Dbeibah attended Sunday’s rally to celebrate the reopening of the highway, at which he stressed that the resumption of activities is vital for the people’s life. He called on his fellow citizens to abandon their differences to achieve stability.
The prime minister thanked the Presidential Council and the Joint Military Commission for the agreement on the reopening of the road, as part of the ceasefire signed in October 2020 to achieve the reunification of the institutions.
Dbeibah’s statements came after the Presidential Council banned all unauthorized military movements on Saturday, when General Khalifa Haftar’s troops seized a checkpoint on the border with Algeria and declared it a military zone.
