The foreign ministers of Libya and Italy on Sunday discussed how to deal with irregular migration, according to diplomatic sources.

The spokesman of Libya’s Foreign Ministry, Mohammed Al-Qablawi, said the counterparts held a phone call on recent developments concerning migration in Libya, as well as the measures taken by Tripoli on the issue.

Libya lies on a major migration route to Europe as it grapples with civil war.

The country’s premier, Fayez Al-Sarraj, had attended the opening ceremony of an immigration coordination center in Malta’s capital Valletta on July 9.
