Egypt and Italy stressed the need for foreign forces and mercenaries to leave Libya without delay, while welcoming the opening of the Coastal Road between the cities of Sirte and Misrata.

The joint position came during a phone call that Egyptian Minister Sameh Shoukry received from his Italian counterpart Luigi Di Maio, in which they discussed a number of regional issues, especially the developments in Libya, according to a press statement by the Egyptian Foreign Ministry.
