Italy's Conte says organising conference on stabilising Libya

WASHINGTON: Italian Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte said on Monday he was organising a conference to look for ways to stabilise Libya, a main departure point for migrants from North Africa trying to reach Europe.

"In agreement with President (Donald) Trump, I'm going to organise a conference on Libya," Conte told reporters at the White House after meeting with the U.S. president. "We would like to deal (with) and discuss all of the issues related to the Libyan people, involving all of the stakeholders, actors, protagonists in the whole of the Mediterranean."
