NNA – French President Emmanuel Macron said on Thursday that he was hoping to set up so-called “hot spots” to handle asylum requests in Libya, which has seen thousands flee fighting in the country.
Earlier this week, Macron chaired talks between Libyan Prime Minister Fayez al-Serraj and the divided country’s eastern commander Khalifa Haftar.
At those talks, the two Libyans committed to a conditional ceasefire and to work towards holding elections next spring.
Macron wants France to play a bigger role in coaxing Libya’s factions to end the turmoil that has allowed Islamist militants to gain a foothold and migrant smugglers to flourish in the absence of a strong central government. —Reuters
