The Italian Ministry of Foreign Affairs expresses great satisfaction for the appointment of Vincenzo Tagliaferri as Head of the European mission EUBAM Libya in Brussels today .
EUBAM Libya is a civil mission launched by the European Union in 2013 to assist the Libyan government in managing its borders. Vincenzo Tagliaferri is taking the helm at a crucial time for the mission’s renewed impetus. His tasks will include planning a future mission to support Libyan authorities in the sectors of justice, migration, border control, and counter-terrorism.
Tagliaferri’s appointment was actively promoted and supported by the Italian government and is further proof of Italy’s commitment, within the framework of broader efforts by the international community, towards Libya’s democratic transition and stabilisation.
