The Egyptian Foreign Minister, Sameh Shoukry, has met with the UN envoy to Libya, Ghassan Salame, in Cairo and discussed the current political deadlock in Libya.

According to the Egyptian Foreign Ministry, Shoukry underscored on Saturday Egypt’s stance regarding the solution to the Libyan crisis, saying it should be achieved through inter-Libyan dialogue to maintain the unity and territorial integrity of the country.

Shoukry and Salame also reviewed ways of fighting terrorism as a means to restore security and stability in Libya.

Egypt has been involved in many ways in the current Libyan crisis; sometimes in hosting military unity meetings and some other times in backing up the self-styled army in eastern Libya led by Khalifa Haftar.
