In a meeting about illegal migration organised by the Government of National Unity (GNU) Minister of Interior on 11 March, Emad al-Trabelsi said that his ministry would be willing to form a joint force with the Libyan National Army (LNA) to secure the southern border. He said the force could be headed by ‘any person whose name is proposed, whether from Haftar’s forces or the Ministry of Interior, and from any region in Libya,’ saying that they were prepared to form this force within two or three months, with a capacity of 1000 vehicles and 5000 police officers from the east, south and west.
