Libya: EU to Assist Border Security

The European Union on Thursday (January 31st) approved a mission to help Libya with border management, Libya Herald reported. The project, which could run for up to two years, will offer a broad range of non-military support, including advice, training, and mentoring.

"A civilian mission to build Libyan capacities in border security and management is not only important for Libya, but for the entire region," EU foreign policy chief Catherine Ashton said.
