European Union ministers said Monday they will discuss “concrete” economic and security projects to back Libya’s new unity government as a bulwark against ISIS group and migrant surges to Europe.

 

The foreign and defense ministers in Luxembourg will discuss via video link such support with Libyan prime minister-designate Fayez al-Sarraj in Tripoli, EU foreign policy chief Federica Mogherini told reporters.

 

The ministers will work “to identify concrete projects in different fields that are the priorities of the Libyan people and of the Libyan government… on the economic and political and security side,” Mogherini said.

 

The video conference is set for 7 pm (17:00 GMT).
