CAIRO – 21 October 2021: Minister of Foreign Affairs Sameh Shokry met Thursday with Prime Minister of the Libyan Government of National Unity (GNA) Abdelhamid al-Dbeibah in the capital, Tripoli, before attending the international conference held to build stability in the country.
The meeting included talks over developments on the Libyan scene whereas Shokry affirmed Egypt's backing to all endeavors aimed at achieving a comprehensive political settlement as well as all the goals indicated in the roadmap endorsed by Libyans.
The minister also expressed Egypt's support to the withdrawal of all foreign military forces from the neighboring state as that would ensure the restoration of security, stability, sovereignty, and territorial integrity of Libya.
Dbeibah and Shokry also followed up on the progress of the implementation of economic and reconstruction agreements signed between the Egyptian and Libyan sides in Cairo in September.
The GNU prime minister expressed his appreciation for the Egyptian role in backing the political solution in Libya, and supporting the country on all levels.
