Italy has not signed the final statement of the Cairo meeting on Libya

UNITED STATES (OBSERVATORY NEWS) — Italian media reported on Wednesday that Italian Foreign Minister Luigi de Mayo had not signed the final statement of the Cairo meeting on Libya.

Italian media added that Luigi de Mayo described the closing statement of the meeting of the foreign ministers of Egypt, France, Italy, Greece and the Romanian administration of South Cyprus in Cairo as “very unbalanced” and did not sign it.

She pointed out that the Italian minister called on his counterparts from the meeting countries to reduce their hard-line stance towards Turkey and the head of the Libyan national reconciliation government, internationally recognized, Fayez al-Sarraj.

The minister stressed the importance of the upcoming Berlin conference on Libya, and the lack of balance for a party during this stage, and that the parties should focus on dialogue and moderation.

In the same context, the Italian Foreign Ministry said, in a statement on the meeting, that “Italy is against all kinds of foreign interference. A ceasefire must be achieved as soon as possible, and a date for the Berlin conference be set.”

It is worth noting that Italian Foreign Minister Luigi de Mayo did not participate in the joint press conference held after the meeting.

On Wednesday evening, Cairo announced the launch of a meeting of foreign ministers of Egypt, France, Italy, Greece and Cyprus (Roumieh), to discuss all the rapid developments on the Libyan scene recently.
