Egypt’s Al-Sisi Calls For All Foreign Forces to Leave Libya

Egyptian President Abdel-Fattah al-Sisi stressed on Wednesday that all foreign forces and mercenaries should immediately leave Libya and expressed his desire for the successful completion of the election in order to help Libya achieve peace and prosperity.

Al-Sisi made the remark during his meeting with the Head of the Libyan Presidential Council, Mohammed Menfi in Cairo, his office said in a statement.

Both sides have discussed a range of issues, including the political process amid the ongoing transitional period in Libya.

“We will not step back from supporting the government and the people of Libya,” Al-sisi said, reiterating Egypt’s all-out support to help Libya get out of its crisis and alleviate the suffering of its people.

In his part, Menfi praised the government of Egypt for its efforts for security and stability in Libya by supporting national reconciliation and unification of state institutions.

Al-sisi has repeatedly called for a clear mechanism for implementation of the exit of all foreign forces, and mercenaries who entered Libya after 2011 as part of efforts to eliminate the danger of terrorist elements posing to the entire regional security, especially in North Africa.
