Italy’s Defense Minister calls for European effort to avoid “devastating” humanitarian crisis in Libya

The Address | Benghazi

ROME – Italy’s Defense Minister, Elisabetta Trenta, said on Wednesday that “a European effort is needed to avert a devastating humanitarian crisis for the Libyan populations and that could also have repercussions on our country”.

Responding to questions by her country’s Chamber of Deputies, Trenta excluded an Italian military intervention in Libya.

“The Italian government remains seriously committed both on the political and on the diplomatic level for a prompt and lasting solution to the ongoing conflict and for the consequent restart of Libyan political dialogue,” she said.

“Therefore the definitive pacification and stabilization of Libya can be achieved only thanks to political solutions agreed by the main Libyan actors”.
