The Libyan Prime Minister, Abdul Hamid Dbeibah, discussed Wednesday with Italian Prime Minister Giorgia Meloni the coordination of efforts to support the floods-ravaged areas in the east of the country.

These remarks came during a phone call conversation on strengthening bilateral relations between the two countries, while Meloni expressed to Dbeibah her happiness at the resumption of direct flights between Tripoli and Rome, stressing her country’s desire to open new destinations with Libya.

Last Saturday witnessed the first official flights from Mitiga Airport in the capital, Tripoli, to Rome, Italy, after about a 10-year hiatus due to the European ban imposed on Libyan aviation.

The two PMs also agreed, during the phone call, to hold a meeting at the level of the interior ministers of the two countries to discuss the results of the recent meetings in Rome regarding the immigration file.

Meloni invited Dbeibah to attend the Italy-Africa Conference, which would aim to strengthen Italian relations with African countries to be held in Rome next November.
