LIBYAPROSPECT – Rome
The Italian Foreign Minister, Paolo Gentiloni, called Egypt to use its power to strengthen the dialogue between the Libyan factions in the eastern Libyan Side and the Presidential Council (PC) of the Government of National Accord (GNA) in Tripoli, under the leadership of the head of the PC, Fayez Al-Sarraj.
According to the Italian News Agency (AKI), Gentiloni stated, in a press release, that he thinks that situation in Libya is decisive for the security of Egypt in addition to the security of other countries in the region.
Gentiloni said that he believes that the divided Libya will not be good for the security in Egypt, adding that division in Libya will push Libya into a perpetual conflict and will affect the stability of the neighboring countries.
Gentiloni clarified that Egypt and Italy need to work together for their interests. He expressed that his country is supporting the Political Agreement (PA) in Libya, which was signed in Skhirat last year.
He said that the Italian Government and the International Community are fully supporting the unity government under the presidency of Al-Sarraj. He stressed that “we have to carry on working on reaching a consensus with forces in the eastern region in Libya and General Khalifa Haftar.
