Europe Defends ‘Irini’ Libya Mission

The spokesman for EU diplomatic chief Josep Borrell, Peter Stano said that the main task of the EU’s IRINI operation is to prevent illegal arms flow into the country.

He said the EU enforcing the UN arms embargo helps create conditions for a cease-fire and a political solution in Libya.

The Common Foreign and Security Policy (CFSP) said that Operation Irini aims at banning arms flow to Libya, halting violence, and creating a climate adequate for negotiations to reach a political solution for the crisis.

It also stressed that the ships won’t be present at the Libyan territorial waters, but in the international waters facing the Libyan shore.
