Johnson meets Al-Sarraj and Al-Swehli in Tripoli



The British Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs, Boris Johnson, announced from Tripoli, on Wednesday, that the United Kingdom is ready to help Libya in maintaining an electronic fence along the Southern Sahara borders of Libya.

Johnson said that Libya is the first line for Europe to fight the illegal migration and terrorism. He met with the head of the Presidential Council (PC) of the Government of National Accord (GNA), Fayez Al-Sarraj and agreed that Europe needs more for confronting the illegal migration crisis.

On another side, the head of the State Council, Abdul-Rahman Al-Swehli, welcomed Johnson and his delegation and talked about the latest political developments in Libya and the ways to tackle the economic and security challenges.

Al-Swehli stressed that the State Council is committed to the Political Agreement as the consensus road map in the last stage to achieve the general elections after the adoption of the permanent constitution. Al-Swehli called for intensifying the efforts under the supervision of the United Nations envoy to Libya, Ghassan Salame, to reach the comprehensive political settlement in Libya.

Johnson renewed his country’s responsibility to support Salame in bringing the different point of views together to succeed in achieving the political stabilization in Libya.
