ROME, Italy, November 2, 2011/African Press Organization (APO)/ — The Foreign Ministry and Minister Franco Frattini hailed Alitalia’s resumption of regular air connections with Tripoli after the 8-month suspension imposed by the conflict. “This is a very important sign”, Frattini said, “of progress in the normalization of the situation in Libya and of our complete resumption of bilateral economic and human relations with a country with which we feel a special affinity and friendship”. “Italy is the first EU country to resume commercial flights with Libya, in confirmation of our front line role in that country and of the excellent collaboration we have established with the new Libyan authorities”. “We also deeply thank Alitalia for the skill and timeliness in with which it has interacted with the foreign ministry, our embassy in Tripoli and the Libyan authorities”, Frattini concluded.
