Libya’s Ambassador to USA: No new initiatives expected in Palermo conference

The Address | Benghazi – Libya

WASHINGTON – Libya’s ambassador to the United States, Wafa Bugaighis, told Russian news agency Sputnik on Tuesday that she does not expect any new initiatives in the upcoming Italian conference on Libya in Palermo next month.

“There is still no apparent agenda except that it [the conference] will support the UNSMIL mission on the political, security and economic tracks,” Bugaighis said. “I don’t expect any new initiatives. It will be basically to support the UN efforts in Libya.”

Bugaighis, however, emphasized the importance of organizing the conference as part of international efforts to solve the crisis in Libya.
