On 22 May 2013, the Council of the European Union decided to deploy the civilian European Union Integrated Border Assistance Mission in Libya (EUBAM Libya).
EUBAM Libya aims to help the Libyan authorities develop capacities to secure the Libyan land, sea and air borders by providing training, guidance and advice. In the longer term, the mission is to work on developing and implementing a strategy for integrated border management together with the Libyan authorities.
On 5 June 2013, the Cabinet took a decision that up to 20 police officers were to be deployed for EUBAM Libya on behalf of the Federal Government.
