European Union Border Assistance Mission (EUBAM) in Libya announced on Sunday the inauguration of the Libyan Border Guard Training Center.
“We are very happy to announce the inauguration of the Libyan Border Guard Training center after a long and fruitful cooperation with the Libyan Border Guards. It is a significant milestone in our joint efforts to enhance border management in Libya in the respect of rule of law and human rights”, states Natalina Cea, Head of European Union Border Assistance Mission in Libya at the opening ceremony.
“EUBAM is very proud for the successful cooperation with the Libyan authorities to establish this state-of-the-art training centre. It will also serve to train staff coming from east and south regions of Libya,” EUBAM said in a statement.
“Borders are not just lines on a map, no, they are symbols of sovereignty and gateways to cooperation. Our collective aim is to strengthen the capacity and professionalism of the Libyan Border Guards, fostering a secure and well-governed border regime that benefits both Libya and its neighboring countries”, says Cea.
“Together, we will transform borders from barriers into bridges for prosperity and peace”, says Jerome Buaillon, head of EUBAM Libya operations.
