Al-Sunni calls on EU to coordinate with Libya on all relevant issues regarding the Mediterranean
Libya’s permanent representative to the United Nations, Taher Al-Sunni, stressed the relevance of the EU’s full consultation and coordination with the Government of National Unity (GNU), along with its specialized agencies, whilst carrying out any operations in the Mediterranean which may be related to Libya.
This came in a meeting in New York with the commander of Operation IRINI of the EU, Admiral Fabio Agostino, where he reviewed the activities of the operation in the context of its implementation of Security Council resolutions, regarding authorizing the inspection and search of ships on the high seas, which may be suspected of violations of the arms embargo.
Al-Sunni also stressed, particularly regarding the importance of showing full support for the GNU in its programs for monitoring and protecting Libya’s borders, not only at sea but also the land borders, particularly the southern borders of the country, within the framework of an extensive strategy, which includes all neighbouring countries with Libya.
