"There is the need for an increasingly wide coalition to determine the destruction of ISIS and of the heinous project it embodies," Renzi has been quoted as saying by ANSA.

"It is fundamental to give absolute priority to the Libyan issue which is at risk of becoming the number one emergency," he added.

Hollande met with Renzi in Paris today as part of his push to form "a strong coalition" against Islamic State in the wake of the Paris attacks.

Earlier in the week, he was in Washington where he met with U.S. counterpart Barack Obama, and will travel to Moscow for a meeting with Russian leader Vladimir Putin later on Thursday.
