ROME, JULY 31 – Maximum support to the UN Special Representative for Libya Ghassan Salamé. “With my colleague Jean-Yves Le Drian, we had an in-depth discussion over the situation in Libya. I told him that it is important that the points agreed in Paris be followed up with tangible actions, measurable by the United Nations, by the international community and also by the same Libyan population”, the Italian Minister for Foreign Affairs Angelino Alfano told his French counterpart in a phone call today.
“This is another reason why it is necessary to assure the maximum support to the new SRSG Salamé”, said Alfano, who, with respect to the meeting held in Rome between Al-Sarraj and Prime Minister Gentiloni, illustrated to Le Drian Italy’s decision to give a positive response to Libya’s request to receive additional support from Italy for the Libyan navy vessels engaged in fighting migrant trafficking.
