Abdelali called upon Europe and neighboring countries to help deal with the flow of immigrants.
He specifically asked for help to rehabilitate 19 detention centers and a system of border surveillance.

For years, Libya has been a destination and a transit country to European shores for hundreds of thousands of African immigrants.
