The UN delegate to Libya Martin Kobler briefed Egypt on the latest developments in the Libyan arena on Saturday.

Kobler held a meeting with the Egyptian Deputy Foreign Minister for Neighbouring Countries Affairs, Osama Al-Majdoub in which they discussed efforts to support the UN-backed GNA in order to achieve stability in Libya, according to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

Al-Majdoub reasserted Egypt’s stance of ensuring the unity of Libyan territories and supporting elected Libyan institutions for their legal role in supporting the government.

Egypt is looking forward to supporting international counter-terrorism efforts in Libya and preventing the influx of foreign militia into the country, he added.

It is vital to support the national Libyan army in order to be able to fight extremist groups, said Al-Majdoub.
