The deputy of political affairs at the Libyan Foreign Ministry Mohammed Essa said the European Border Assistance Mission in Libya (EUBAM) should stick to its tasks in the country and operate via Libyan institutions, rejecting any work by the mission outside the scope of its tasks.
In a meeting with the Head of EUBAM, Natalina Cea, Essa said Libya has qualified cadres in border protection and isn’t in need of training but it does need logistical support. He added that some international organizations have no active role in Libya but have other agenda.
Essa called on relevant authorities to put in place regulations for international organizations, which he said should respect Libya’s sovereignty, promising to hold meetings with all relevant borer security sectors in cooperation with EUBAM to set up a strategy in this regard.
Meanwhile, Cea reiterated keenness of EUBAM to provide all kinds of support to Libya and work with all relevant authorities to achieve the proposed strategy.
