The Head of the Libyan High Council of State Khalid Al-Mishri discussed Tuesday in Tripoli with the Italian ambassador Giuseppe Buccino the developments of the Libyan crisis and the upcoming military and political dialogues.

The two officials also talked about the violations of the ceasefire by Khalifa Haftar's forces and their lack of commitment to the Berlin conference conclusions.

Buccino, meanwhile; told Al-Mishri about Italy's stance on the ongoing developments, especially Russia's relationship with Haftar and the latter's refusal to sign Moscow ceasefire agreement.

They also talked about the MoUs between Libya and Turkey, reviewing the European Union's stance regarding this signing, especially Cyprus and Greece.

In the meantime, Italy's Foreign Minister Luigi di Maio said on his Facebook page that he had talked with his Austrian and German counterparts on the phone to discuss what is after Berlin and the initiatives that ensure all parties adhere to the arms embargo in Libya.

Di Maio said the 5+5 Military Commission meeting could be the stepping stone for any new dialogues, adding that there's no military solution in Libya but only solutions through dialogue.
