LIBYAPROSPECT – London
Germany is considering to participate in the European Union (EU) efforts to train the Libyan coast guard forces.
Sources from the German Government said that the German Defense Ministry is looking for the kind of support to provide.
The sources added that it is possible to take a decision within weeks regarding the support, confirming that the German participation is to enlarge the role of the EU Sophia operation.
The EU is willing to help the Libyan coast guard forces to reduce the illegal migration from Africa.
It is worth mentioning that about 90 thousand migrants arrived in Europe through the Mediterranean Sea this year.
