UN OFFICIAL, LIBYAN MINISTER DISCUSS SECURITY ARRANGEMENTS IN TRIPOLI

TRIPOLI, Libya- Libya's Interior Minister, Fathi Bashagha, and Deputy Special Representative of the UN Secretary-General for Political Affairs in Libya, Stephanie Williams, Thursday, discussed security arrangements in the capital, Tripoli.

International community's support for the implementation of the capital's security arrangements, and the ministry's new vision for security, were the focus of discussions between the two officials, said the UN Support Mission in Libya.

Libyan security services struggle to establish security, particularly in Tripoli, as the country suffers escalating violence and political division.

The security arrangements, which focus on forming a joint police and armed forces, to secure Tripoli, were adopted by the government in Sept, when violence broke out in the city, between the government forces and armed groups.

On Sept 12 last year, UN Special Envoy to Libya, Ghassan Salame, announced the start of the implementation of the arrangements.
