Dabeiba: The GNU is working to end the transitional stage and bring a state of stability back to Libya
Abdelhamid Dabeiba, the head of the Government of National Unity, confirmed once again that his government was striving to conclude the transition period and hold free, fair, and legitimate elections to lay the groundwork for Libya’s future state.
The Prime Minister stated during a joint press conference with Italian Prime Minister Mario Draghi that they had agreed to expand bilateral cooperation and reactivate joint committees to monitor the 2008 Treaty of Friendship and Partnership, which played a critical role in achieving Mediterranean development and stability.
They also agreed to sign an agreement on the transfer of persons sentenced to prison sentences, noting that Justice Minister Halima Ibrahim had been tasked with examining the details and following up on cases involving Libyan detainees and that she would visit Italy next week to discuss the matter.
He expressed his delight at the prospect of increased investment cooperation and trade in renewable energies, marine and industrial wealth, and reconstruction, noting that Italian companies would be among the most important due to their experience working in Libya and that the Government of National Unity would remove any barriers.
The Libyan Prime Ministers emphasized that re-establishing economic ties between the two countries would necessitate the rapid reopening of European aviation to and from Libya, given the facility’s critical role in alleviating the suffering of patients, passengers, and students, and stated that they looked forward to utilizing Italian medical expertise and activating the agreements of cooperation in the health sector.
Additionally, the Government of National Unity looked forward to the establishment of unified coordination mechanisms to address common security challenges and broaden participation in the fight against irregular migration with all European countries, source and transit states, and emphasized that the issue was not being addressed exclusively on the Libyan coast.
