Egyptian President, Abdel-Fattah Al-Sisi, received on Thursday the Prime Minister of the Libyan Government of National Unity (GNU), Abdul Hamid Dbeibeh, in Cairo, in the presence of Egyptian Prime Minister, Mostafa Madbouly, and Chief of the General Intelligence Service, Abbas Kamel.
Al-Sisi stressed Egypt’s firm stance towards respecting Libyan sovereignty and preserving its territorial integrity, rejecting all forms of foreign interference in Libyan internal affairs, as well as strengthening the cohesion of Libyan national institutions and unifying the Libyan National Army to protect the capabilities of the Libyan people and activate their free will, according to Egyptian Presidency.
Sisi praised the recent issuance of the Presidential Election Law by the Libyan House of Representatives (HoR), as an important step in implementing the roadmap requirements approved by the Libyans, leading to the holding of parliamentary and presidential elections on schedule date at the end of this year.
He expressed Egypt’s readiness to provide all necessary capabilities in order to help the Libyans prepare the required atmosphere for the implementation of this very important electoral event.
For his part, Dbeibeh affirmed his country’s great appreciation and pride at the official and popular levels for the very important Egyptian role led by President Sisi in stabilizing peace and stability in Libya, in light of the brotherly and historical relations between the two brotherly countries, especially with regard to supporting Libyan national institutions and transferring Egyptian influential experiences in the fields of reconstruction and development for Libya, in a way that meets the aspirations of the Libyan people towards a safe and dignified life.
The Egyptian Minister of International Cooperation, Rania Al-Mashat, announced the preparation of 13 joint agreements that will be signed during the meeting of the Libyan-Egyptian Joint High Commission, including cooperation in the fields of infrastructure, youth, sports, social insurance, transportation, electricity and petroleum, in addition to 11 other agreements concluded between the two sides, during the visit of the Egyptian Prime Minister, Mustafa Madbouly, to Tripoli last April, which also included the fields of electricity, transportation, communications and others.
