EU sets out €200-million plan to combat illegal Mediterranean migration from Libya

13 Feb

EU leaders have approved a deal to step up training, the supply of equipment and other support for the Libyan coastguard, following a summit in Malta today that was backed by Presidency Council head Faiez Serraj.

The move is part of a wider, new €200-million plan to stem the flow of migrants from Libya across the Mediterranean. This also includes upgrading migrant camps in Libya, along with the IOM and UNHCR, and funding to the IOM to help the repatriation of migrants who do not have a case for asylum.
