Italy firmly condemns this morning's attack on the French embassy in Tripoli
ROME, Italy, April 23, 2013/African Press Organization (APO)/ -- Italy firmly condemned this morning's attack on the French embassy in Tripoli, and expressed its solidarity with the French authorities and all those affected by this vile criminal act.
Today's serious incident is proof that extremist forces continue to operate in Libya, aiming to derail to process of democratic transition and foment instability.
These are small fringe groups that do not mirror the will of the Libyan people or the Tripoli authorities, and that must be isolated and stopped. Italy is determined to continue to support the transition in Libya, and once again urges the international community to fully encourage the consolidation of democratic institutions in that country, in the interests not only of Libya but of the stability of the entire Mediterranean region.
