The Libyan deputy foreign minister of Presidential Council government Lutfi Al-Maghrabi signed with the US Charge d'Affaires to Libya, Stephanie Williams, a security cooperation agreement in Tunisia.

Media office of the foreign ministry said in a statement on Friday that the signing included a memorandum of intent for airport security and a letter of agreement to support Libyan policing, corrections and justice sector development.

"The signing opens the door for training Libyan cadres in the aforementioned fields with the funding and assistance of the US." The foreign ministry's statement reads.

The two sides renewed support for the efforts of the UN envoy to Libya, Ghassan Salame, to push forward the Libyan political process and achieve stability.
