In a statement they said that the armed conflict in the country is seriously undermining the supply and distribution of perishable goods.

Libya is now suffering from shortages in food and fuel due to the fact thart the ports through which food is transported are not able to function properly. The operation of the ports is extremely important for the country, as Libya imports 90 percent of the food which is consumed by the population.

Since the beginning of the unrest food prices have risen by more than a third.

The World Food Program has called on the authorities to take immediate steps to increase the import of goods into Libya.

Accordingm to experts Libyan accounts in western countries must be unforzen in order to make the resolution of the problem possible.
