    (ANSAmed) - ROME, APRIL 28 - Italian Foreign Minister Luigi Di Maio on Wednesday told the Lower House that "on migration, we have confirmed to the Libyan government Italy's support through the Cooperation for Development and the Migrations Fund". "I would like to recall that we are the only European State today to carry out humanitarian evacuations from the country and we will continue to do it with conviction", the foreign minister said.

    Di Maio highlighted that "it was possible to carry out these important steps thanks to the impulse given by my last three missions to Libya".

    The first, recalled the minister , was carried out "after the formation of the new Libyan government to prepare the relaunch of bilateral relations. The second, together with my German and French colleagues, to reaffirm Europe's support. The third, in which I worked alongside Prime Minister Mario Draghi, to define collaboration projects".(ANSAmed).
