Italy's Prime Minister invites Libya's Al-Sirraj to Palermo Conference next November
The Head of the Presidential Council (PC) Fayez Al-Sirraj was invited on the phone by the Italian Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte to attend Palermo Conference on Libya in Italy on November 12-13, the media office of Al-Sirraj reported Wednesday.
The two officials spoke on the phone about the preparations for the conference as Conte stressed the support of Italy for the efforts exerted by Al-Sirraj to establish stability in Libya.
"We appreciate the efforts and support provided by Italy to help Libya go through a democratic path that is very needed by Libyans. We thank Italy for the conference and hope it would result in positive solutions to the political stalemate."
Italy set the date for the conference and chose Sicily's city Palermo as the host, saying "it is close to what is going on in Libya."
"Italy doesn't have solutions to all Libya's problems but is ready to help boost the efforts that aim to stabilize the country." Conte told Italian lawmakers last Tuesday.
Likewise, the Italian Foreign Minister Enzo Moavero Milanesi said the EU and its organizations all confirmed that they are ready to back up efforts that aim to stabilize Libya.
