EU agrees to deploy warships to enforce Libya arms embargo

An article in The Guardian refers to an internal EU memo that was released to the public by Statewatch concerning the operation to come into force as the mission to save migrants and refugees is scaled down.

"An internal EU memo, released by the London-based civil liberties group Statewatch, underscores that the EU does not expect to be involved in rescuing people. “Naval assets can be deployed in the areas most relevant to the implementation of the arms embargo, in the eastern part of the area of operation or at least 100km off the Libyan coast, where chances to conduct rescue operations are lower,” it says."
