The UK signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with Libya’s Airports Authority to supply it with explosives detectors.
The MoU was signed for the UK at the Tripoli headquarters of Libya’s Airports Authority by British ambassador Frank Baker last Wednesday.
The head of Libya’s Airports Authority, Mohammed Bait Al Maal, signed for the Libyan side.
The MoU was part of the establishment of joint cooperation between the Libyan Ministry of Transport and the British Ministry of Transport, aimed at the initial stage of raising the level of security at Libya’s airports by providing security devices and equipment.
The MoU also includes the training of members of Libya’s security personnel in using the supplied devices.
