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.
