CAIRO (Reuters) - Libya's state-run National Oil Corporation (NOC) welcomed on Tuesday calls by the U.S. Embassy in Libya for resumption of oil operations, NOC said in a Tweet.

However, NOC added that "Operations can only resume when illegal blockades are lifted. Blockading hurts Libyan people and inflicts severe damage to the country’s economy. All responsible parties should lift blockades and respect rule of law."

The U.S. Embassy for Libya said earlier on Tuesday it is deeply concerned that a shutdown of oil operations in Libya risks exacerbating the humanitarian emergency in the country and called for an immediate resumption of operations.
