Vienna talks on GNA’s support to convene next week, Gentiloni said


Talks in support for Libya’s new UN-backed GNA will be held in Vienna next week, Italy’s Foreign Minister said on Monday.

The meeting will focus on international efforts to bring stability to Libya, where two rival governments have vied for power since 2014, opening the way for Islamic State to establish itself and gain ground in the North African state.

Regional foreign ministers will meet for the talks, according to Italy’s Paolo Gentiloni. He did not give details on who would attend, but past talks on Libya have included the United States and European officials and Libya’s North African neighbors.
