Roma, 6 Aprile 2019 – Diplomats at work in an attempt to stop the new civil war in Libya. Fayez al Serraj, Prime Minister of the Libyan National Accord Government (GNA) in a speech a few moments ago addressed the Libyan people talking about the efforts made for the reconstruction of Libya after the gaddafi and accused the Field Marshal Khalifa Haftar of treason. “This is a war that will have no winners,” Serraj said.
And some minutes ago, US Deputy Sec. of State Sullivan has expressed more than concern on Libya: “We are urging that the parties stand down. An incursion into Tripoli would be an exceedingly bad and dangerous move.”
The Tripoli government called on the French ambassador to protest against Paris’s support for Haftar.
This morning, the President of the Council, Giuseppe Conte, had a telephone conversation this morning with UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres.

President Conte expressed his concern about the latest developments in Libya, a concern strongly shared by Guterres whorecently left the Libyan country after several meetings, including the one with Haftar.
The President Conte reiterated Italy’s strong support for the United Nations-led political transition process, considered the most effective and sustainable way to achieve the final pacification and stabilization of the country for the benefit of the entire Libyan people.
The President Conte and the Secretary General Guterres will remain in close connection in the coming days. The resumption of an effective dialogue between the parties remains the goal shared by the international community, which already in various formats – as last time in the declaration of the G7 Foreign Ministers – expressed itself in this sense.
