The President of the Italian Republic, Sergio Mattarella, stated that Italy’s goal is a real government in #Libya; which has power, and controls the entire Libyan territory effectively and smoothly.
Mattarella added that Italy is doing its part, and that the European Union is working in cooperation with the United Nations in a difficult, yet still possible, field in order to ensure that #Libya returns to being a state with real governmental authority.
On Wednesday, Mattarella clarified that the Libyan people have every right to use their wealth resources to live in prosperity- as reported by the Italian news agency Aki. He added that the crisis in #Libya is caused by the absence of a strong government.
During a meeting with his Finnish counterpart, Sauli Niinisto, in the Finnish capital of #Helsinki in regards to illegal migration, Mattarella added that It is unreasonable to hand over the keys to the doors of Europe to human traffickers.
