Given the state of war under way in Libya between the military and rebels loyal to Colonel Gheddo supported by an international coalition air missions, which was promoted especially by the French government is so far no one can know whether this deadline will be honored .Moreover, even if the payment were to happen, it is possible that the transaction is hampered by economic sanctions by the United Nations and the European Union with the intent to hinder enforcement acted on by the Libyan Government.
