During the meetings, view exchanges were made between parties on Libya’s recent political developments and the election process. In addition, in the statement made by the Italian Ministry of Foreign Affairs, it was stated that Williams’ efforts are supported.

Calling for the leading actors to be in solidarity as a solution to preventing a political stalemate, the Italian Foreign Minister stated that he is hopeful for the future of Libya.
The Libyan presidential elections, planned to be held on December 24, was postponed.
