The Italian Foreign Minister, Luigi Di Maio, welcomed the reopening of the coastal road, considering it a significant step, which was long-awaited by the Libyan people and the international community in general.

Di Maio added that opening the road is an important development towards the reunification of the country, which will lead to more conclusive steps towards the full implementation of the ceasefire, particularly on the matter of the withdrawal of all foreign fighters and mercenaries, as he put it.

Di Maio stressed that Italy, as the co-chair of the working group on the follow-up mechanism of the Berlin Conference, reiterated its strong appreciation for the commitment of the members of the 5+5 Joint Military Commission in successfully opening the coastal road.
