Libya rejects military plans from EU to contain human trafficking
Libya is largely rejecting European Union plans to fight back people smugglers. Libya’s ambassador Ebrahim Dabbashi has stated that the best way to resolve the issue is to arm the legitimate government. He has also warned that if there will be no progress found in the peace talks made then the government which is under an embargo will take necessary steps to take back the capital by force. The European Union is looking forward to take necessary steps to avoid the migrants drowning on the Mediterranean. The UN believes that more than 60,000 people have already tried to cross the Mediterranean out of which about 1,800 people are believed to have died on the way. The European Union is also looking forward to provide a quota system and also to expand the maritime rescue services among them. Germany is in support for the quota services. Apart from this Italy, Greece, Australia and Malta are also seeking help from European Union members to share their responsibility since many migrants of them arrive by boat.
