Italian Defense Minister Lorenzo Guerini said on Thursday that there is a "fragility" of the ceasefire in Libya, despite the progress made at the political level and the formation of the Libyan Government of National Unity (GNU).

In a joint hearing with the defense committees of the House of Representatives and the Senate on Thursday, he said: "A sensitive political process is taking place in Libya that has developed against the backdrop of a fragile ceasefire threatened by the presence of foreign mercenaries and militias."

Guerini also confirmed that "Italy will continue to stimulate more interest towards the southern wing of NATO and will certainly be a pioneer in any initiatives that will be launched to achieve stability in the region, not only close to the Italian coasts but also vital to national interests."
