The Address | Benghazi – Libya
BEIJING – The aim of Field Marshal Khalifa Haftar to reunite Libyan territory might have “an inspiring logic and a plausibility”, Italy’s Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte told a press conference in Beijing on Friday.
“I am not supporting any individual Libyan actor,” said Conte, adding that Italy’s position is “in favor of the Libyan people” not with Field Marshal Haftar or Tripoli-based premier Fayez Al-Sarraj.
He said that Field Marshal Haftar’s aim of reuniting Libyan territory might have “an inspiring logic and a plausibility but our position is proving to be far-sighted”.
“We believe that a military solution is absolutely not trustworthy,” Conte said.
The Italian premier called on the leaders of the European Union and the United States to help reach a political solution.
