Italian Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte has called on all international and regional actors to attend the Palermo conference on Libya in a bid to find a lasting solution to the crisis.

A week before the upcoming international conference on Libya in Palermo, Sicily, on the 12th and 13th of November, Conte told journalists in Algiers that Algeria was fully interested in the conference on Libya, expressing his happiness they accepted the invitation to participate.

The Libyan issue dominated the discussions of Conte and his Algerian counterpart Ahmed Ouyahia, they said at a joint press conference.

Ouyahia explained that Algeria will participate with an official delegation that will work alongside the Italian authorities to make this conference a success.

According to the Algerian minister, the central goal of his country in resolving the Libyan crisis is that it has to come from the Libyans themselves, in addition to supporting the efforts of the United Nations to bring peace.

Conte visited Tunisia and met with President Beji Caid Essebsi last Friday, where he invited him to attend the conference. He explained that stability in Libya is a vital factor in ensuring the security and stability of the North African and Mediterranean region.
