    ROME - The special representative and head of the United Nations Support Mission in Libya (UNSMIL), Ghassan Salamé, has visited Catholic charity Comunità Sant'Egidio in Rome at the end of his visit to Italy, the first since his appointment in June.
    During the talks, which were attended by the Community's head of international relations, Mauro Garofalo, recent developments in the complex Libyan scenario were analyzed. Also on the agenda were initiatives of dialogue and stability undertaken by the Community since the start of the crisis. In particular, talks focused on the results of recent meetings promoted by the Community between representatives of some areas in which tensions are stronger, like the two cities of Misrata and Zintan, in Tripolitania, and those of the Fezzan region in the South. During the visit, the two delegations also discussed the issue of migrants and concerns that have emerged over the past few months, stressing that Libya's pacification and unity are essential to fight human trafficking and manage the phenomenon in agreement with affected countries.
    Ghassan Salamé, who has known the Community for many years, expressed appreciation for the work it has undertaken and called for an active cooperation to reach a definitive solution to the Libyan crisis.
