The Italian Foreign Minister, Paolo Gentiloni, told reporters that the key to fighting terrorism and waves of migration is to stabilize Libya.

In a joint communique with John Kerry and Fayez Al-Serraj following the Vienna talks Monday, Gentiloni said that with stabilization, all countries can fight terrorism.

“With stability we can assure development to a country with rich potentialities but with a strong humanitarian crisis now.” He added describing Libya’s current situation.

Gentiloni also indicated that with stability in Libya, foreign powers can tackle the migration issue and develop the resources of Libya.

“Without stabilization, we risk tensions, divisions and intra-Libyan fights.” He concluded.
