Deputy prime minister Luigi Di Maio said Friday at a press conference that he was confident a shared road map for the stabilization of Libya could be drawn up at the November 12-13 conference in Palermo. ''We will not create false hopes, but it is very important for us to find a shared road with all those involved to move on to the next step,'' Di Maio added.

He stressed that ''it is very important for us to receive the willingness of the US for us to be the leading country in the management and stabilization of Libya and we are doing this with the highest level of commitment, hoping to get the highest level of results'' and that ''we are not excluding anyone from supporting this road''. France will be represented at the conference by Foreign Minister Jean-Yves Le Drian, the country confirmed on Friday after German Chancellor Angela Merkel on Thursday said she would not be attending but would be represented by Foreign Minister Niels Annen.
