NATO Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg said that Palermo conference on Libya was a very important initiative, saying, "I congratulate Italy on this summit".

"There is a need for initiatives such as Palermo to move towards a negotiated solution in Libya، and again thanks to Italy،" Stoltenberg said in his speech at the fourth session of the Mediterranean Forum in Rome.

Stoltenberg stressed that they have learned that prevention is better than intervention, noting that countries must be assisted to stabilize their territories by focusing on training local forces and capacity building.
