Council of Europe urges Italy to halt cooperation with GNA Coast Guard

The Libyan Address Journal

The Council of Europe urged the Italian government to stop supporting the activities of the Coast Guard of the Tripoli-based Government of “National Accord,” and to include guarantees in the memorandum of understanding signed between Italy and the Islamist government headed by Fayez al-Sarraj, regarding respect for human rights.

This came in a letter sent by the Council to Italian Foreign Minister Luigi di Maio, asking him to suspend cooperation activities with the Tripoli-based Coast Guard, given the current field situation in Libya.
