The Ministry of Interior of the Presidential Council stated that 21 trainees from the crew of a Libyan Coast Guard boat travelled to Italy on Tuesday for a training course in the field of operation and maintenance of boats.

The ministry said that the dispatch of this group comes under the third phase of the joint agreement between the Libyan and European side in the field of coastal security, combating migration and organized crime.

This is the third group to be sent to Italy by the Libyan Coast Guard after two previous rounds of similar courses had been completed last year.
