Algeria, Italy, Egypt FMs meet to discuss Libya

World Bulletin / News Desk 

Italian Foreign Minister Paolo Gentiloni arrived in Cairo on Sunday to participate in a FM-level meeting with Egypt and Algeria to discuss the current situation in Libya.

The talks follow a previous meeting in Rome between the three countries.

Libya has remained in a state of turmoil since a bloody uprising ended the decades-long rule of Muammar Gaddafi in late 2011.

Since then, the country's stark political divisions have yielded two rival seats of government, each with its own institutions and military capacities.

Vying for legislative authority are the Tobruk-based House of Representatives and General National Congress that convenes in the capital, Tripoli.

The two assemblies support two rival governments respectively headquartered in the two cities.
