“The visit of Italian Ambassador Giuseppe Peroni to Zintan on August 2ed took place without the Council’s knowledge,” the council said in a statement.
The statement added that “the Council was not a part during the visit, which represents only those present in their personal capacity, and bear sole responsibility for the historical, social and legal consequences.”
He stressed that he agreed with the statement of Sabratha not to allow the transfer of foreign ambassadors between Libyan tribes and cities as a violation of national sovereignty.
