Borg urges EU to help Libya control its borders
Foreign Minister Tonio Borg has renewed Malta's calls for the EU to assist Libya in border management.
Speaking at a meeting of EU foreign ministers today, Dr Borg welcomed the holding of the elections in Libya and the fact that 16.5% of the seats of the constituent assembly were won by women.
He then renewed Malta's appeal to the EU to help Libya secure its border, thus reducing the flow of migrants across the Mediterranean.
Today's meeting adopted another set of sanctions against the Syrian regime. The foreign ministers strongly condemned the increasing use of force by the Syrian regime and reiterated their call for an immediate end to the killing of civilians, the withdrawal of the Syrian army from besieged towns and a peaceful end to the current crisis.
Malta supports Macedonia's EU membership
The Foreign Ministry said that Dr Borg also had a meeting with his counterpart Nikola Poposki, Minister of Foreign Affairs of the Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia and reiterated Malta's support towards Skopje's EU membership.
