Earlier in the day, President Abdel Fattah El-Sisi voiced Egypt’s readiness to support Libya as a sisterly country and a nation of strategic depth to Egypt as he met with military officials after the Friday Prayer in Moushir Tantawy Mosque.
Sisi, in a video published by the Presidency, said he urged the Egyptian government to organize the travel of the Egyptian labor to Libya in a better way and prepare databases that include the information and specializations of these workers.
