Italian Prime Minister Mario Draghi arrived in Tripoli on Tuesday morning for his first official visit abroad since taking office.
Draghi will meet the head of the interim national unity government Abdulhamid Dabaiba in a round of talks, followed by a joint press conference, according to Italian news agency Agenzia Nova.
The agency noted that the parties will examine a number of important files, notably political developments, illegal migration, security and the joint economic relations between the two countries.
On 25 March, Italian Foreign Minister Luigi Di Maio visited Tripoli with his French counterparts Jean-Yves Le Drian and German Heiko Maas.
The tour was preceded by Di Maio's unannounced visit to Tripoli, the first for an EU foreign minister after the formation of the new authority in Libya.
