Italian PM: We won’t send troops to Libya despite foreign pressures.

Rome, Italian Prime Minister, Matteo Rinzi, announced Monday that his country would not send military forces to Libya despite external pressures . Anatolia news agency quoted Renzi as saying that sending Italian forces to Libya would put us in great perils, and our forces would be target to many perils and attacks. Italian Prime Minister said our goal lies in commanding the international force to be formed in Libya, but this would not take place until stability is achieved in the country. Renzi underlined that Italy would continue offering support to the Libyan consensus government led by Fayz Saraj to realize peace and security in the country, besides 'our commitment to the humanitarian situation' he added. Head of Italian government pointed out that this decision came through close consultations with president of Italy who has always been cautious regarding any Italian foreign moves. Renzi statement coincided with the start of the international ministerial meeting on Libya, held in Vienna under the auspices of Italy and the USA and participation of active countries to discuss ways to empower Government of National Accord.
