UN envoy to Libya receives invitation to visit Italy

Italian Foreign Minister Antonio Tajani announced his invitation to the United Nations Special Envoy to Libya, Abdoullaye Bathily, to visit Rome, according to Italian Nova news agency.

Tajani stressed that the United Nations initiatives aimed at stabilization, with an agreement between the parties in Libya, are moving in the right direction.

“We support international initiatives to reach elections and prevent irregular migration flows from Libya to Italy and Europe,” Tajani said in the statement during a joint press conference with his Turkish counterpart, Mevlut Cavusoglu, in Ankara on Friday.

Tajani stressed that Italy and Turkey have a common vision on Libya, adding, “We want to achieve stability, and we will work together because we are convinced of the need to hold elections,” noting that stability also means limiting irregular migration flows.
