TRIPOLI, Sept. 6 (Xinhua) -- Libya's land and maritime borders are currently under the control of the Libyan authorities, said Interior Minister Emad al-Tarabelsi on Tuesday.
"We confirm control over the Libyan land and maritime borders and we have security arrangements with the border countries," the minister told a press conference in the capital Tripoli.
Al-Tarabelsi also expressed willingness to cooperate with the European countries to secure the Libyan land and maritime borders, in line with bilateral agreements.
The minister said that through structural reforms of the ministry, many security obstacles were addressed during the first half of this year.
