Commanders and members of the Libyan Coast Guard at Tripoli Naval Base received Saturday the new patrol boat "Ubari" from the port of Messina in Italy.

Members from the Coast Guard had headed earlier to Italy for a 4-week training program to undergo operational and technical training on the boat.

During the last period, the Libyan navy has also received the vessel "Fezzan" as part of the Italian Coast Guard's support and cooperation in combating illegal migration.
