According to a Serbian news source, Deputy Defense Minister Khalid al-Sharif has claimed Libya is interested in making agreements with Serbia, concerning the training of military personnel in Serbian military institutions.
Al-Sharif said that an agreement on military cooperation will be signed soon. A Libyan delegation led by him came to Belgrade to establish military relations between the two.
“We believe that this agreement will be signed very soon. We already have a draft agreement, and we will form a joint technical commission immediately after that, and then start with the realization of big deals. We are waiting for Serbia to send its defense attaché to Tripoli,” Al-Sharif told Belgrade-based daily Politika.
This comes after the General Staff of the Libyan army said they want more recruits to engage in military service across the navy and air force, and on ground, in order to build a stronger army capable of protecting their homeland.

Recruits should also submit a colour photo, original academic documents, criminal background check, certificate to assure they receive no welfare, a written statement on why they want to be part of the Libyan military, and must be willing to work in any designated area. with Libyan territory.
