Italian Foreign Minister Luigi Di Maio arrived in Benghazi on Thursday and met with Marshal Khalifa Haftar. On Wednesday, Di Maio had flown to Tripoli for talks with Government of National Accord (GNA) prime minister Fayez Al-Sarraj and Interior Minister Fathi Bashagha.

Despite Wednesday's adoption of a resolution by the UN Security Council calling on the parties in conflict in Libya for a ''lasting ceasefire'', more fighting was reported on Thursday south of Tripoli between GNA troops and those answering to Haftar, according to both witnesses on the ground and the GNA forces.
