Libyan commander Haftar will attend meetings in Italy, not conference - Haftar's command

Italian Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte arrives for a Libya conference in Palermo Italy Monday Nov. 12 2018. Representatives of Libya's quarrelling factions and of countries keen on stabilizing the North African nation started meetings in Sicily Monday

Contrarily, the talks at conference were majorly centric to the diplomatic war between France and Italy, however the French's plan to hold Libya elections in December completely failed.

Italian Foreign Minister Enzo Moavero on Wednesday spoke about the United Nations road map for elections in Libya, saying that "a temporal horizon has been identified, considering next spring to complete the process that should lead to the next elections".

Conte, Libya's eastern military commander Khalifa Haftar and United Nations backed Prime Minister Fayez al-Sarraj attended Tuesday's meeting.

"You don't change the horse until you cross the river", the diplomat quoted Haftar as saying.

More than seven years after the ousting of long-serving dictator Muammar Gaddafi, no central authority has asserted control over oil-producing Libya and armed groups control the streets.

The statement was made by Moroccan Foreign Minister Nasser Bourita Tuesday in Palermo, during the global conference, organized by the Italian Populist government of Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte, this Nov.12-13.

Turkey has withdrawn from an worldwide conference on Libya in Italy's southern city of Palermo, the country's vice president said on Tuesday.

Al-Sarraj had hoped elections would be held in December, following discussions at a summit earlier this year in France, but this plan was abandoned due to ongoing violence and chaos in parts of Libya. The U.N. has been soliciting input from a broad array of Libyans on the way forward, but says the time has come for a wider group to devise a clear timetable for elections.

Italy has brought together the main players in the Mediterranean region and has kickstarted a dialogue on conflict-wracked Libya, Italy's Premier Giuseppe Conte tweeted on Tuesday.

Serraj heads the government in the west, which has struggled to exert control beyond the capital Tripoli. Sisi and Haftar both skipped the opening dinner on Monday evening.

Libyan stakeholders all registered their presence with delegations sent by the Presidential Council, High Council of State and House of Representatives. Recall that in June of past year, several Arab states - including Saudi Arabia, Bahrain, Egypt and United Arab Emirates (UAE) - broke relations with Qatar and imposed an air, sea and land blockade on Qatar.

Besides, the conference aimed to tackle the growing drifts that could potentially hamper the worldwide relationships.
