Italy is ready to lead military operation in Libya


The Italian Foreign Minister, Paolo Gentiloni, announced his country’s readiness to lead military operations to install security and stability in Libya, upon the request of the Government of National Accord (GNA).

On Tuesday, he told Italian newspapers that planning and coordination between the various defense systems on the potential contribution to the security of Libya reached very advanced levels, stressing that it is continuous since several weeks, in which he discussed regional crises, the fight against extremism, developments in Libya and migration.

The American Defense Minister, Ashton Carter, announced on Monday that America pledged to support Italy in its demand to take the leadership of the international coalition in Libya, which will be activated as soon as the GNA is installed.
