Germany and the US see eye to eye on Berlin conference on Libya

The German Foreign Minister Heiko Maas said his country and the United States see eye to eye regarding the Berlin conference on Libya.

In a joint press conference with his Italian counterpart, Maas said Saturday that the US is highly interested in Berlin conference.

Maas added that the two countries want to end the destabilizing conflict in Libya as the military solution cannot work in the country.

The Italian Foreign Minister Luigi di Maio also expressed his country's concern over the ongoing fighting in Libya, saying Italy supports Berlin conference and that it calls for a ceasefire in the country.

"The external intervention through funding and arming should end in Libya. Paris and Rome don't intervene in the internal affairs of Libya." He added.

Berlin is scheduled to host an international conference on Libya to try to sole the crisis and end the conflict by returning all parties to the political process. source
