Shoukry made the remarks in a meeting on Wednesday with High Representative of the European Union for Foreign and Security Policy Josep Borrell on the sidelines of the UN General Assembly.
Egyptian Foreign Minister Sameh Shoukry and EU's High Representative for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy Josep Borrell will chair on Sunday the ninth meeting of the EU-Egypt Association Council in Luxembourg.
"Our recipe is the same: dialogue and political understanding. We have been asking for it, we will continue asking for it," Borrell said in press remarks carried by the EU's website.
Borrell met with Egyptian leaders, including the president, to focus on issues of mutual concern, especially the Middle East peace process and the Libyan crisis.
Borrell and Aboul Gheit both think the Israeli annexation plan should not be fulfilled, the statement read, due to international objection.
Egyptian Defense Minister has expressed appreciation for the relations between Egypt and the European Union, saying that these relations are of strategic nature, as he met with Josep Borrell, the EU high representative for foreign affairs.
Shoukry highlighted the Jufra-Sirte “red line” Egypt has earlier set in order for ceasefire to be implemented in Libya and hostile activities to stop in the country.
Sisi affirmed that Egypt welcomes all constructive and positive steps that would lead to peaceful settlement, de-escalation and development in Libya.
