Italian PM Silvio Berlusconi arrived in Libya on Tuesday for a brief visit including talks with Libyan leader Muamer Gaddafi, Italy’s Ansa news agency reported.

Berlusconi flew into Sirte, 400 km east of Tripoli , saying that "the past is far behind" and that Italy was a friend of Libya and "wishes to remain so." The Italian PM is the first western leader to visit Libya since it announced in December that it had given up the search to obtain WMDs.
