The European Union Border Assistance Mission in Libya (EUBAM Libya) marked a significant milestone with the inaugural meeting of the Sub-Working Group on Land Border. This table brings together representatives from the Libyan Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Ministry of Interior, Ministry of Defense, and the Customs Authority, alongside EUBAM Libya’s Operations Department. This subgroup was established based on conclusions of Join Committee between Libya and EUBAM.




This meeting focused on advancing specific projects aimed at strengthening border management, with a particular focus on the Libya-Tunisia land border. EUBAM Libya collaborates with Libyan authorities to provide essential supplies, including infrastructure, IT equipment, and specialized equipment for more effective border surveillance.




These efforts will be complemented by series of specialized training programs for Libyan law enforcement agencies. Capacity-building initiatives will cover crucial areas as smuggling detection, search techniques, heritage preservation, and international humanitarian law. These initiatives will follow the ones planned to be delivered this month on border security and risk management.




Building on the positive engagement and fruitful discussions with Libyan counterparts, EUBAM will continue work in other two Sub-Working Groups on Maritime Security and on Countering Organized Crime and Terrorism.
