CAIRO: Egypt’s President Sisi has stressed the importance of reaching a political settlement in Libya and has urged the country’s leaders to maintain a “Libyan-Libyan” dialogue to curb foreign interference.
President Abdel Fattah el-Sisi said it was important to build on positive steps towards a political settlement in Libya during a phone call with the new head of the Libyan Presidential Council Mohamed Al-Menfi.
Sisi also congratulated Menfi on the formation of a new executive authority in Libya and on the new government obtaining the parliament’s confidence, according to a statement by the Egyptian presidency.
Menfi, during the phone call, hailed Egypt’s sincere efforts in seeking to restore security and stability in Libya.
The phone call comes only few days after Libya's parliament voted to back the unity government led by interim PM Abdel-Hamid Dbeibeh.
