A German news agency quoted sources in the European Union (EU) that the latter intends to extend the mission of Operation IRINI to monitor the arms embargo on Libya for a further two years, to start in early April.

The commander of the Operation, Admiral Fabio Agostini said in a statement on Monday that IRINI is an important tool for setting up a final end to the present armed conflict in Libya.

He stressed that they were prepared, if called on, to play a pivotal role in monitoring any ceasefire agreement if it was requested by the UN and the Libyan authorities, with the approval of European countries.
