The European Union (EU) has decided to extend its Border Assistance Mission (EUBAM) for a further notice in Libya in order to end illegal immigration and terrorism in the country.

The EU foreign ministers decided in a meeting on Monday in Brussels that the results of Operation Sophia personnel, who are fighting illegal immigration off Libya’s coast, are satisfactory.

Aki – the Italian news agency, reported that the EUBAM mandate will be extended in the coming weeks.

It also said that the EU is going to expand the sanctions to include human traffickers as well as persons and entities that have links to human rights violations that are taking place in Libya.

The EU ministers also said in a statement that they will boost efforts in order to end the influx of illegal migrants to Libya and via Libya to the EU countries.
