Italy and Germany agree to resume talks on political reforms
The Italian Special Envoy to Libya, Nicola Orlando, said on Twitter that he had met with his German counterpart, Christian Buck, in Berlin on Tuesday.
According to Orlando, both Italy and Germany agree on the priority of restarting Libya’s political process, elections, lifting oil blockade, and unified government to urgently provide basic services to Libyans.
The Italian Special Envoy indicated that Rome and Berlin will work with international partners to preserve Libya’s sovereignty, stability and unity.
Orlando visited France last Monday to meet with French Special Envoy to Libya Paul Soler, with whom he discussed the urgency of preserving the Libyan political process.
Orlando said on Twitter that Italy and France share the goal of Libya’s unity and stability, adding that they are committed to working together to help Libyans resolve the current impasse and go to elections.
France, Italy and Germany’s Special Envoys all visited Libya throughout last June and met with Presidential Council, High Council of State, House of Representatives and Unity Government’s top officials, urging them to support the UN-led political process and UN Advisor’s efforts to find a common ground for a constitutional basis for elections.
