Answer – VP/HR – Surveillance and intervention in Libya – E-002717/2016

1. The EU has no information on US unmanned aircraft operating in Libya. 2. No surveillance and reconnaissance data or other information gathered within Eunavfor MED are transmitted to US authorities. 3. The EU through the work of its relevant services has significantly reinforced its support to Tunisia during the last year in the field of security, including in relation to integrated border management. In particular, the 23EUR million programme launched at the end of 2015 to support the reform and modernisation of the security sector in Tunisia includes a specific component dedicated to integrated border management. In the area of border management, the EU is cooperating in particular with the UN (UNOPS and UNHCR), relevant international organisations like the International Centre for Migration Policy Development (ICMPD), the Danish Refugee Council and International Alert and with local NGOs. Cooperation is also foreseen with EU agencies like Frontex and EASO and it is relying on EU member states expertise and technical assistance.
