Libyan FM accepts Shoukry's invitation to visit Egypt soon
Published in Ahram Online on 24 - 04 - 2021

Libya's Foreign Minister Najla Mangoush has accepted an invitation from her Egyptian counterpart Sameh Shoukry to visit Egypt "at the earliest opportunity."

A date for Mangoush's anticipated visit will be set soon, Egyptian foreign ministry spokesman Ahmed Hafez said in a statement following a phone call between the two ministers on Saturday.

Shoukry's invitation to Mangoush comes "within the framework of continuing consultation and coordination on strengthening the pillars of stability in Libya," according to the statement.

The invitation also comes "in light of the extended historic relations between the two countries," it added.

The two top diplomats discussed means to enhance Egyptian-Libyan relations and discussed developments in the situation in Libya.

They also reviewed the efforts to fully implement the outcome of the Libyan Political Dialogue Forum (LPDF) and the relevant United Nations Security Council decision to ensure stability and prosperity are achieved in Libya.

The UN-sponsored LPDF seeks to pave the way for the legislative and presidential elections in Libya scheduled for December.

On Thursday, Egypt's President Abdel-Fattah El-Sisi ordered providing support for Libya in all fields to implement the country's political roadmap until the planned elections in a meeting with Prime Minister Mostafa Madbouly.

The meeting came shortly after Madbouly returned from Libya, where he led an 11-minister delegation and met with Libyan officials.

During his stay, he discussed with Libyan officials the re-opening of the Egyptian diplomatic missions in Tripoli and Benghazi as soon as possible, in addition to a request by Libyan Prime Minister Abdulhamid Dbeibeh to allow the return of Egyptian workers in the nearest time.

Madbouly said an agreement was also reached with Libyan officials to resume meetings of the joint higher Egyptian-Libyan committee in the upcoming weeks for the first time since their suspension in 2009.

The premier discussed with El-Sisi the projects to be implemented in Libya in the upcoming period as well as the role of Egyptian companies in the re-construction of Libya.
