German Foreign Minister Sigmar Gabriel on Wednesday made a surprise visit to Libya to announce a new tranche of aid to Libya, Deutsche Welle reported.

Germany will provide 3.5 million euros ($3.9 million) to Libyan authorities to improve conditions at migrants camps in the North African country, Gabriel said, according to DW.

The money is expected to complement relief funds provided by Germany aimed at easing Europe’s migration crisis.

“It is, therefore, our goal, together with the Libyans, to resist the instability that has arisen from the absence of established structures,” Gabriel said, DW reported.

“Concrete progress is urgently needed.” He added.
