The Italian news agency "Nova" quoted diplomatic sources as saying that Italian Foreign Minister, Luigi Di Maio is expected to arrive in Tripoli on Tuesday.

Nova said that Di Maio's visit to Tripoli comes on the backgrounds of growing influence of Russia and Turkey in the Libyan file, as well as the thrust of the Italian government towards formulating a common European position.

The visit is the first official mission for the Italian foreign minister to Libya, since he took office on the 5th of September, according to Nova.
