Sisi tells Haftar Egypt supports counterterrorism measures to achieve security in Libya
Published in Ahram Online on 14 - 04 - 2019

Egypt's President Abdel-Fattah El-Sisi discussed on Sunday with Field Marshal Khalifa Hafter, commander of the Libyan Armed Forces, the latest developments in Libya and Egypt's keenness to see unity, stability and security in its neighbouring country, presidential spokesperson Bassam Rady said.
During the meeting, El-Sisi affirmed Egypt's support for the efforts to combat terrorism and extremist groups and militias in order to achieve security and stability for the Libyan citizen in all the country's territory to establish the foundations of a stable and sovereign civil state.
The meeting was attended by Egypt's intelligence chief Abbas Kamel.
Libya has been a war-torn country since the death of its leader Muammar Gaddafi in October 2011. Islamist militants have since controlled large parts of the vast country, including the capital Tripoli.
El-Sisi has pledged to support Egypt's neighbouring countries through cooperation and coordination.
During the past week, Eastern-based Libyan forces led by Haftar have been advancing in a push to seize the capital, Tripoli, but troops loyal to Prime Minister Fayez Al-Serraj's internationally recognized government have so far kept them at bay.
