Haftar meets Meloni in Rome to tackle Libya crisis


Khalifa Haftar, the General Commander of the Libyan National Army (LNA), met on May 4th with Italian Prime Minister Giorgia Meloni in Rome where they discussed a number of topics including “unprecedented increase” of the migratory flow towards Italy, according to multiple reports by Italian press.

On April 27th, 57 migrants washed up dead on Libyan shores pushing both Italy and the EU to work harder on a solution although both camps have a different viewpoint on how to go about it.

According to Italian newspaper La Repubblica, Haftar and Meloni also discussed the ongoing conflict in Sudan during their two-hour conversation at Palazzo Chigi.

During the meeting, Meloni confirmed her country’s support for the United Nations’ plan to revitalize the political process that could lead to presidential and parliamentary elections by the end of 2023 in Libya, according to Italian news agency Ansa.
