Luxembourg Foreign Minister Jean Asselborn said that the European Union countries agreed on Monday to stop Operation Sophia, the bloc’s naval mission in the Mediterranean Sea, and conduct a new strategy focused more on implementing a UN arms ban around Libya.

Asselborn told reporters in Brussels: “Operation Sophia is closed. Finished.”

He said they had reached a “political agreement” to close the operation, launched in 2015 to take firm action on migrant smugglers when its mandate expires in March.
