The Head of the High Council of State, Khalid Al-Mishri, told the Italian ambassador to Libya, Giuseppe Buccino, that his council is keen on conducting a constitutional referendum on the draft constitution devised by the people-elected assembly and holding elections on time.

Al-Mishri reiterated Tuesday, as he met Buccino in Tripoli, the importance of bilateral relations between Libya and Italy, especially in economy.

The meeting saw discussions on issues of mutual interest between the two countries and reviewed the latest developments on the political level as well as Berlin II Conference conclusions.
