Brief introduction of Libya

Libya in North Africa, which shares borders with Egypt, Sudan, Chad, Niger, Algeria, Tunisia and the Mediterranean Sea, has a population of 7 million people and an area of 1 million and 700 square kilometers, among which Tripoli is the most important city in this country. It should not be said that 90% of this land is covered by deserts. Therefore, due to the lack of suitable land for agriculture, most of the food needed by the people is imported from abroad, but Libya is one of the top 10 countries in the world in exporting oil because it has the largest reserves. Oil in Africa belongs to this Arab-speaking Muslim country.
