The Head of the Presidential Council of the UN-backed Government of National Accord (GNA), Fayez Al-Serraj, said Friday that the western countries should put pressure on Chad, Mali and Niger in order to have more security on the borders with Libya.

Al-Serraj told a German newspaper Friday that the Coast Guard personnel in Libya are in need for training and also the Navy Forces can make use of the EU Sofia mission for more training and experience.

“The west abandoned Libya shortly after the revolution and Libya has been facing its economic, social and political issues on its own ever since.” Al-Serraj said.

Earlier last week, the EU Foreign Ministers agreed on expanding the human-trafficking combat mission with training of Libyan coastguards and ban on weapons to Libya tasks.
