Malta seeks more EU assistance for Libya

Tripoli, Libya - Maltese Foreign Minister George Vella has urged the European Union (EU) to assist Libya to ensure stability in this troubled period.

'The European Union must send a message to the Libyan people to show them that we are committed to help achieve their aspirations for a secure, democratic and prosperous future,'  Vella said at a meeting held this week by EU foreign ministers in Brussels.

He urged the EU to strengthen its commitment to Libya, and warned that extremist groups were not only a danger to Libya but also to Europe.

Last week in Malta, Vella reiterated his country’s support for Libya during the visit of Prime Minister Ali Zeidan.
