Giuseppe Conte underlined the urgency – after too many years of instability and suffering for the Libyan people – to work to ensure that the political process led by the United Nations is fully shared and operational, as the only credible way to reach a comprehensive and sustainable solution, to start from the effective implementation of the ceasefire.
