Dabeiba: Libya alone will not be able to stop migration and human trafficking
Abdelhamid Dabeiba, head of the Government of National Unity stated that Libya alone cannot stand in the face of the rampant human trafficking and illegal migration on its borders and coast
Abdelhamid Dabeiba, Prime Minister of the Government of National Unity, emphasized that Libya, as a transit state, alone cannot halt the phenomena of illegal migration and human trafficking, emphasizing the necessity for “strong collaboration between the European Union and the countries of origin.”
Dabeiba made the remarks during a meeting with European Union Commissioner for Internal Affairs, Ylva Johansson, in the presence of the European Union Ambassador to Libya, José Spadel, this week in Tripoli.
According to a statement from the Information Office of the Head of Government of Unity, the meeting focused on illegal migration and human smuggling, as well as ways to support the Government of National Unity’s efforts to address this phenomenon and its negative consequences, including terrorism and organ and human trafficking.
The meeting emphasized the importance of true collaboration and crisis management. Migration is a delicate issue that requires a range of responses, including the establishment of development projects in countries of origin and assistance to the Libyan authorities through training programs for members of the Anti-Immigration Service and capacity development for the Libyan Coast Guard.
