The deputy prime minister of Libya's Presidential Council, Ahmed Maiteeg, expressed hope on Tuesday for a European role in solving the country's current crisis. 

Maiteeg made his remarks during a meeting in Libyan capital Tripoli with Head of the delegation of the European Union (EU) to Libya, Alan Bugeja, where the two officials discussed the latest developments in the country, according to a statement issued by the information and communication office of the Libyan government.

"The deputy prime minister expressed hope for the European Union to have a role in the coming stage to solve the Libyan crisis, because of the closeness of European countries to Libya, as well as activating a mechanism to implement a number of project contracts that were signed previously," the statement said. 

The meeting also discussed the recently-launched European Operation IRINI against arms smuggling to Libya, the statement said.
