Italian Special Envoy Nicola Orlando and Italian Ambassador to Libya Giuseppe Buccino visited Prime Minister Abdul Hamid Dbeibeh in the capital Tripoli on Monday.
Foreign Minister Najla Mangoush also attended the talks.
During the talks, Italian officials stated that Italy does not support another transition period in Libya, which is preparing for elections for a new political period.
In addition to this, in the statement made by the Government of National Unity (GNU), it was stated that the current developments in Libya and the election process were discussed during the meeting.
Nonetheless, it was emphasized that the bilateral relations between the two countries should be improved, especially in the fields of health, energy and the fight against illegal immigration.
Italian companies, which have carried out important projects in Libya since the Gaddafi period, have aspired to many projects in the fields of construction, infrastructure and energy in the new period.
In this sense, the activities of Italian energy giant ENI are plentiful in the western part of the country. Some regional experts even claim that there is serious competition in the Libyan energy sector between ENI and the French Total company.
