Libya and Sudan seek to activate valid previous agreements, strengthen the role of the customs of the two countries in protecting and securing the land borders, and to eliminate smuggling in all its forms.
The news came following last Sunday’s meeting at the headquarters of Libya’s Customs Authority, a between Major General Suleiman Ali Salem, Director General of the Customs Authority, and Ahmed Mohamed Ibrahim, Ambassador of Sudan in Libya.
The two parties discussed and consulted, and reviewed the previous signed agreements that are still in force but not activated. The two sides then agreed on the need to expedite the activation and development of the agreements previously concluded between the two countries.
The Sudanese Ambassador expressed the possibility of Sudan supplying agricultural products and livestock to Libya, whether through the border crossing (Al-Awainat) or through the Misrata Free Zone. He also called for the need to open prospects for cooperation between the customs directors of the two parties and to resolve all obstacles.
For his part, the Director General of the Customs Authority welcomed this visit, stressing the strengthening of cooperation between the two parties in order to facilitate trade exchange and enhance security.
