ISIS: Fabius, Italy leader in Libya, France by its side

Cabinet urgent, requests evaluated. Paris not considering action

    (ANSAmed) - ROME, FEBRUARY 2 - ''Italy has taken a sort of leadership in Libya, as is logical, and France is going in the same direction'' to sponsor the creation of a national unity government, French Foreign Minister Laurent Fabius told reporters on the sidelines of a meeting of the anti-ISIS coalition Tuesday in Rome.

    Fabius stressed that it is now ''urgent'' to build a government, ''approved by Parliament and thus by the international community''. Such a process is moving forward with ''delay'' but can break through now that a more restricted executive compared to the previous one has been presented.

    Once the government will take office, he added, ''we will wait for its requests for support''. The Libyan crisis, as part of the fight against ISIS, raises ''concern'', stated Fabius, stressing that the priority is a political one and that it is ''totally incorrect to talk about French military intervention''.
