British Foreign Secretary: ISIS in Libya poses no immediate threat to Europe
In an interview with Reuters, Britain’s Foreign Secretary, Philip Hammond, said on Friday he saw no immediate threat to Europe from ISIS bases in Libya and did not expect the new Libyan government to ask for foreign troops anytime soon.
“I don’t expect the Libyan government to ask for foreign troops either in a combat or a training role anytime soon,” Hammond said in an interview during a visit to Cuba.
“But we have made clear we will support this new government,” he told Reuters.
