Italian Minister of Foreign Affairs Luigi Di Maio said on Wednesday that Libya is essential to Italy's foreign and security policy, affirming his country's determination "more than ever to defend its geopolitical and strategic interests."

This came during statements carried by the Italian new agency Aki when Di Maio arrived in Rome after a short visit to Tripoli, where he met with Libya Presidential Council leader Fayez Al-Sarraj and Minister of Interior Fathi Bashagha.

The head of Italian diplomacy stressed that "the dialogue between Italy and Libya has never stopped, even in the most severe stages of the coronavirus emergency," stressing that "Libya is essential to our foreign and security policies."
