Libya opposes European Union plan to set up assessment centres for migrants

The Libyan foreign minister has said his country opposes a European Union
plan to set up assessment centres for migrants outside the EU’s territory.

The plan was drawn up by EU leaders last June, as Italy called for more
controls on migration flows.

But the Libyan minister, Mohamed al-Taher Siala, has now told an Austrian
newspaper that all North African countries reject the idea of so-called
disembarkation platforms on their territory.
