Italian Foreign Minister Luigi Di Maio stressed that Libya will always be one of the main priorities of Italian foreign policy.
Di Maio added, according to Italian Nova news, that Libya is considered a natural hub in the Mediterranean.
He explained during a parliamentary briefing before the joint foreign and defense committees of the House of Representatives and the Senate that the stability of Libya means the stability of the Mediterranean.
The Italian Foreign Minister stressed that the appointment of a new UN envoy to the country would be critical.
Di Maio pointed out that former Algerian Foreign Minister Sabri Boukadoum is one of the names nominated to succeed current UN advisor Stephanie Williams, stressing that there should be a special envoy who is fully aware and able to mediate between the parties.
Di Maio pointed out that the new divide with the presence of two parallel governments in the country endangers Italian projects and does not simplify relations with Libya.
The Italian Foreign Minister emphasized that Italy should also play a leading role in the conduct of elections in the North African country.
