Interior Minister, Fathi Bashagha said the United Nations has ceased its support to transfer illegal immigrants to their countries.

This came during his meeting with the United Nations Deputy High Commissioner for Refugees, Kelly Clements, on Monday, in Tripoli.

Bashagha pointed out that Libya is dealing with the refugee issue on humanitarian grounds, which is a huge burden on a state experiencing such difficult conditions.

He also called on other countries to get together to find a solution to this global crisis, saying that Libya should not be left to face this task alone, according to the Interior Ministry.
