The Italian Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte said he spoke to the US President-elect Joe Biden and discussed the situation in Libya, reminding him of the need for more US attention to the Libyan crisis.

In a press conference in Rome, traditionally held every year-end, Conte said Italy backed peaceful solutions in Libya, saying the military situation is fragile and that military solutions cannot solve the problem, which can only be resolved by dialogue, according to Aki.

He said the crisis in Libya has always been of importance to Rome, adding that Italy, in cooperation with the European Union and NATO, aims to achieve stability in the country as per Berlin Conference conclusions away from foreign intervention or military action.
