CAIRO – 15 June 2021: Minister of Foreign Affairs Sameh Shokry met Tuesday with his Libyan counterpart Naglaa al-Manqoush on the sidelines of an Arab ministerial meeting in Qatar's Doha.
Both ministers discussed developments on the Libyan scene and congrued on the importance of pushing forward the steps and measures agreed upon within the political process, including holding elections by the end of the year.
Further, Minister Shokry invited the Libyan foreign minister to visit Egypt in the coming days within the framework of consultation between both countries on all levels. A statement of the foreign ministry asserted Egypt's eagerness on backing Libya to begin a new phase characterized with consensus among Libyans, and a stable state whose internal affairs are not meddled with by foreign states.
Manqoush is minister in a new interim government that was elected in UN-sponsored Geneva political talks earlier this year by Libyan prominent figures. The main mission of the Government of National Unity (GNU) is unifying the Libyan people and institutions to run nationwide elections on December 24.
