German Chancellor Angela Merkel voiced her concern about the 'worrying' situation in Libya while speaking at a presser alongside UN High Commissioner for Refugees Filippo Grandi in Berlin on Monday.
«I talked with the Egyptian president today about the situation in Libya as it is very worrying and we will talk about that as well. We see the situation in Sudan, in South Sudan, which also poses an... Еще important task,» Merkel said.
Grandi echoed her remarks, noting that Libya is a transit country for refugees and migrants on the way to Europe, and said «in the past few months we managed to have access to some of the detention centres and alleviate the plight of some of the people, but this particular escalation of the conflict makes it very difficult to do that work and could create further displacement as we saw in 2011.»
Grandi then praised Germany's efforts to build «unity» in Europe for tackling the issue of refugees and migration, and said that Germany has been «very instrumental in Europe, in promoting the debate for better and more efficient asylum policies and fortunately both to resolve conflicts and to improve policies in Europe.»
