Del Re meets key political players in Libya's east

Italy's deputy foreign minister Emanuela Del Re held talks in eastern Libya on Wednesday with the Tobruk-based parliament's speaker Aguila Saleh and with military strongman Khalifa Hafta ahead of an upcoming international conference on the war-wracked country to be held in Italy, the foreign ministry said in a statement.

Del Re met Saleh in the city of Gubba and Haftar in Benghazi, the statement said without giving details of the talks.

During her meetings, Del Re re-extended Italy's invitation to the Libyans to attend the international conference on Libya which is taking place in Palermo on 12-13 November, said the statement.

Italy hopes Libyan and international power-brokers will attend the Palermo meeting on stabilising the oil-rich state, which has been in turmoil since the UN-backed ouster of late dictator Muammar Gaddafi.
