The Address | Benghazi – Libya
ROME – Italy’s Foreign Minister, Enzo Moavero Milanesi, told Italian newspaper Corriere della Sera on Thursday that dialogue with Russia is highly important for resolving the Libyan issue.
“If we truly want to stabilize the situation in Libya, we cannot avoid dialogue with Russia. Clearly, it is up to the Libyan people to make an agreement but if we leave the most important mediators out, the search for a solution will become much more difficult,” Milanesi said.
He added that “Russia has always been interested in the Mediterranean Region – be it the Russian Empire, the Soviet Union or today’s Russia – and it should come as no surprise.”
