According to the Italian news agency Aki, Alfano attended a two-day meeting in Brussels of NATO foreign ministers, where he said, “I have a clear sensation that we have reached unanimity,” adding that “this is a positive thing given that too many negotiations have yielded few results.”.
Alfano reaffirmed his country’s support for the UN envoy to Libya Ghassan Salame, saying “for the first time we have a negotiator who has held sway in Misurata and not only in Tripoli, with the prospect of holding democratic elections in Libya,”.
Last November, Salame visited Misurata, Tripoli, Tobruk and Benghazi.
