Italian Prime Minister Mario Draghi said that “Libya can be a huge resource for gas and oil…not only for Italy but for all of Europe.”
This came during Draghi’s meeting with US President Joe Biden at the White House, in which he confirmed that the relations between Italy and the United States have always been very strong, but the war in Ukraine made them stronger, according to the Italian website “Decode 39”.
Draghi stressed the need to think deeply about dealing with the energy and food crisis, which aggravated against the background of the war, while counting on the support of the United States.
In response to a question about what can be done about Libya, Draghi stressed the need to work together to achieve stability in the country.
Europe is living under pressure from high prices due to the war between Moscow and Kiev, as Italy imports 95% of its natural gas needs from outside the country, according to a statement by Italian Environment Minister before the Senate in late March.
