Haftar in Rome for talks with Italian PM, Serraj refused to attend

(ANSA) – Rome, January 8 – Eastern Libyan military strongman General Khalifa Haftar has arrived at Italian Premier Giuseppe Conte’s office in Rome for talks, sources said on Wednesday.
Fayez al-Serraj, the head of the Tripoli-based, UN-recognised government, was initially expected to arrive in Rome later on Wednesday, but sources said later he would instead be flying straight from Brussels to Tripoli.

The Tripoli-based government has been under sustained attack since Haftar’s forces launched an offensive in April.
