Guerini stressed the need to prepare at this stage to respond effectively to the needs of Libyan institutions.

Libya and Italy last December inked an agreement to facilitate military cooperation between the two countries that includes participation in training and joint manoeuvres, the structure and organization of military and security institutions with the shared prospect of equipping the military and security units with all the necessary skills to perform their duties to the fullest.

The agreement also includes cooperation in military medicine through the training of medical staff and personnel, providing necessary equipment and the exchange of consultants, information, and expertise in scientific, technical, and military security.
