A Libyan delegation discussed with European officials Thursday in Brussels enhancing cooperation in the areas of border security and combating illegal immigration.

The delegation was headed by the Director of the Office of the Minister of Interior, Abdelwahed Abdelsamad, with the participation of representatives from the Ministries of Foreign Affairs and Defense, while the European side included specialists from the European Union Commission and organizations operating in Libya.

The delegation held another meeting with the commander of the European Union mission charged with assisting Libya in monitoring land and sea borders, EUBAM, in the presence of the European Union ambassador to Libya, Nicola Orlando.

The two meetings discussed ways to enhance joint cooperation in securing and managing borders, supporting the competent Libyan security units, and training their cadres to raise their efficiency in this vital field.

The file of illegal immigration and securing Libya's borders was one of the most prominent files that were brought up in the discussion of the Prime Minister of the Government of National Unity, Abdul Hamid Dbeibah, during his recent visit to the European Union headquarters in Brussels at the head of a high-level delegation.
