Tripoli, 21 January 2015:
Libya was squeezed off the top of the agenda of the European Union’s Foreign Affairs . . .[restrict]Committee meeting by the Charlie Hebdo attacks.
Though an options paper that outlined a number of recommended action points on Libya was prepared for the meeting, it appears that other issues were given more attention.
The meeting yesterday was dominated by counter-terrorism measures, which included sharing intelligence with predominantly Muslim states. Members talked about how to communicate better with the Arab world and strengthen links.
Arab League secretary-general Nabil El-Araby joined the committee members for a working lunch during which they discussed relations and security cooperation between EU and Arab League.
Araby urged the EU to increase its focus on helping develop education in the Arab world as a way to combat religious extremism. [/restrict]
