The Czech Republic’s prime minister has pledged his country’s full support for Fayez Serraj, the prime minister of the U.N.-backed Libyan government in the capital, Tripoli.

Andrej Babis said Wednesday the Czech Republic has paid 8.75 million euros ($10 million), its share of the 35 million euros ($40 million) it pledged together with Hungary, Poland and Slovakia to help stop illegal migration from Libya.

Serraj said he also discussed with his Czech counterpart the possible cooperation of security and spy services. He said Libya needs technology and arms to be able to better guard its borders, and also needs help to improve the situation in the official refugee centers.

There are some 20,000 people in those centers, a tiny fraction of the 800,000 migrants who are currently in Libya, Serraj said after meeting Babis.
