Paolo Serra: Military intervention in Libya will be “nontraditional”


The UN Security Consultant in Libya, Paolo Serra, said there won’t be a traditional military intervention in Libya, but the UN is going to provide Libyans with the necessary assistance to enable them to control their country.

In a statement to the Italian magazine, Panorama, Serra said the UN could train Libyan military personnel with the help of Italian military experts and other countries as well.

Serra added that they can use drones to observe and patrol Libya’s borders, especially the southern borders with Chad, Niger and Sudan, as they are more loose.

He reiterated that all Libyan parties should support the GNA to get Libya out of its current crisis.
