Officials from Africa, the Middle East and the US on Tuesday (February 12th) attended an international ministerial meeting on Libyan security, Libya Herald reported.

"Much has already been achieved but issues remain," French Foreign Minister Laurent Fabius said in his opening address to the Paris summit. International partners should send "experts to train Libyan security forces and police, and help to rebuild the army, navy and air force", he said.

For his part, Libyan Foreign Minister Mohamed Abdulaziz called for help in securing the country's borders.

Representatives of the African Union, the EU, the Arab League and the UN also attended the security conference.
