ROME – The Prime Minister of Libya’s Government of National Accord (GNA), Fayez Al-Sarraj, is expected in Turkey as soon as he ends his visit to Italy, Italian news agency Nova reported on Friday.

The 60-year-old premier met with his Italian counterpart, Giuseppe Conte, yesterday to discuss the ongoing peace negotiations in Libya, according to a statement by the Italian government.

Nove reports that, after Italy, Al-Sarraj will join some members of his cabinet who arrived in Ankara few days before he would.

GNA’s Ministers of Interior and Defense Fathi Bashagha and Salah Al-Din Al-Namroush, the Head of the High Council of States Khaled Al-Mishri, and a number of militant leaders left Libya in the past 72 hours to meet with Turkish officials.
