Libya conference a success -govt sources

Newspapers wrote 'senseless things' about meeting

(ANSA) - Rome, November 13 - Government sources on Tuesday hailed the conference on Libya that Italy is hosting in Palermo as a big success. "The importance of a meeting like this should be highlighted because it was complicated to organize it. Having organized it is a big success for Italy," the sources said. "We have to cheer for Italy. I understand some hate this government, we get lots of mud thrown at us every day.
    "It was written that the conference would be a failure, that the lead players were not coming - senseless things.
    "The lead players were all present. It is an offence to the extraordinary diplomatic work that has been done to say they were not present".
