The Italian Foreign Minister has arrived in Tripoli, marking the first visit by a European official to Libya since the UN-backed government kicked off work in the capital.

Libyan officials say Paolo Gentiloni was received at Matiga airport on Tuesday by deputies of Fayez Serraj, the head of a unity government that Western countries hope can unite Libya and combat a powerful Islamic State.

The officials, who spoke on condition of anonymity, said the Italian FM, Gentiloni, is scheduled to meet with Serraj, who arrived in Tripoli on March 30 by sea in Tripoli Naval Base.
