Libya wants UK help on border security

Libya has asked Great Britain for help in organising specific training courses on border security and techniques to avoid the 'infiltration' of traffickers of illegal immigrants, Ansamed/Jana has reported.

It said the courses, for local security forces, would be held both in Libya and the UK. The request was made in the context of new talks with European countries about the problem of illegal immigration.

Cooperation in security, and ways to insure it, were looked at in a meeting in Tripoli between British Ambassador Vincent Fean and the Libyan Minister of Public Security Abdoulfatah Younis on Wednesday, attended by a number of British experts.

The British ambassador expressed his country's interest in activating tangible collaboration with Libya especially in border security, in combating smuggling, infiltration and gangs of people traffickers and in providing sound remedies. He reiterated his country's keeness to fully cooperate with Libya in the different areas.
