Tripoli, 8 June 2016(Lana) The GNA Foreign Minister Mohamed Siala has described relations between Rome and Tripoli as distinguished, and said there was an agreement to reactivate the friendship treaty in accordance with the joint statement. In an interview with the Italian Aki news agency Siala said ‘as a result of geography and history, the relationship isn’t distinguished only now, but ever since the establishment of the Rome convention which founded the European Common Market before the EU, Italy insisted that a special statement on Libya case be issued on the distinguished relationship, and demanded that its partners treat Libya in a special way, and that statement was the basis for the Libyan Italian relations.’ The Minister said there was an agreement to re-activate the Friendship Treaty between Libya and Italy in accordance with the joint statement which he and the Italian Foreign Minister signed during his visit to Italy. Siala said during his stay in Italy he visited the Libyan wounded at the Military Hospital in Rome, and paid tribute to the Government of Italy for the good treatment they had. =Lana=
