Shoukry highlighted the need to achieve stability in the country during a meeting held on Saturday with the Vice President of the Presidential Council, Abdullah Al-Lafi, the statement of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs specified.

The head of the Egyptian diplomacy reiterated Cairo’s support for Libya, as well as the electoral schedule that seeks to give a solution to the crisis the country has experienced since the start of the war in 2011.

President of Egypt Abdel Fattah El Sisi called last month for the evacuation of all foreign troops from Libya, where thousands of Syrian mercenaries sent by Turkey are deployed.

Days later, both countries signed 14 Memoranda of Understanding and six agreements in various socio-economic sectors as part of their reactivation of bilateral relations.

Under the auspices of the UN, 75 Libyan delegates representing various factions and territories elected a transitional government last February, charged with leading Libya until the December elections.

According to the Minister of State for Economic Affairs, Salama Al-Ghoweil, national reconstruction will cost 500 billion dinars (about 111 billion USD) over the next 10 years.
