EU preparing for a possible wave of migration from Libya


Attempts by the leader of illegitimate armed forces in eastern Libya, Khalifa Haftar, to disrupt the ceasefire in the country have sparked concerns about a new wave of migration to Europe.

AA reporter asked European Commission spokeswoman Dana Spinant about a possible wave of migration from Libya to Europe.

Asked by AA reporter that “Haftar left Moscow without signing ceasefire agreement and Tobruk-based House of Representatives Speaker Haftar’s ally Aguila Saleh has stated that the attacks will continue … conflicts endanger … more and more lives of many civilians and increase the risk of migration to Europe. Will Europe take new measures against a possible new wave of migration from Libya? ” be prepared for possible outcomes rather than reacting to possible migration.

She said that opinion also forms the basis of the “new migration agreement” the EU is currently working on and is planning to put on the table soon.

“Our objective is to present a more inclusive perspective that solves all problems in the migration issue,” Spinant said.

Turkish and Russian delegations held talks with the Libyan parties on January 13 in Moscow. The Turkish delegation accompanied the Government of National Reconciliation (GNA) as the Russian delegation tried to persuade Khalifa Haftar and the Speaker of the Tobruk-based House of Representatives, Aguila Saleh.

But Haftar left Moscow without signing the text of the deal formulated after lengthy efforts.
