Italy has welcomed the recommendations approved by the representatives of the Libyan parties which were as a result of talks held in Montreux, Switzerland, under the auspices of the United Nations Support Mission in Libya (UNSMIL).

The Italian Foreign Ministry said in a statement that the discussions are a step in the right direction in light of the upcoming Libyan Political Dialogue Forum.

It added that the recommendations of the Swiss talks would contribute to creating the ideal conditions for framing a common institutional network for an electoral process, which guarantees the representation of all Libyan people and more importantly the sovereignty of Libya.
