Al-Sisi to attend Paris conference on Libya
Egypt’s President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi will travel to Paris to attend a conference on Libya on Friday and to hold talks with French President Emmanuel Macron, the Egyptian presidency said in a statement.
The conference is being organised with the United Nations, Germany and Italy, and comes head of elections planned in Libya for Dec. 24.
Egypt, which is eyeing economic opportunities in Libya and has reestablished a presence in the capital Tripoli, has called for the elections to go ahead.
Egypt supported Haftar’s forces after a previous vote in 2014 escalated a conflict and effectively split the Libya between rival eastern and western camps.
