Today's meeting was another positive step in the continued process of restoring security here in Tripoli and across Libya so their government can continue the stabilization process.
This meeting offered us an opportunity to update Prime Minister al-Sarraj on issues and concerns previously identified, including potential future defense institution building efforts and security force assistance.
The U.S. Africa Command continues to collaborate with GNA security officials on ways we can support those forces charged with securing Tripoli.
We support partner operations, including the European Union Border Assistance Mission in Libya and Operation Sophia, which train for border security.
We commend Prime Minister al-Sarraj for taking important steps in the process of restoring unified governance to the country. We urge all parties in Libya to work with the GNA and focus on eliminating the threat posed by ISIS in Libya.
