The Address | Benghazi – Libya
CAIRO – Egypt’s president Abdel Fattah El-Sisi called on Tuesday for the international community to “shoulder its responsibilities” to ensure the start of political negotiations between parties in Libya.
Speaking at the African Union Summit, he asked countries of the bloc to offer their support to Libya to help eliminate terrorism in the country.
El-Sisi said: “You must enable the army and police in Libya to perform their duty to maintain security and stability,” while African leaders called for an “immediate halt” to fighting in the north African country.
Egypt was hosting African leaders for emergency talks on Tuesday on the upheavals in Sudan and Libya, as El-Sisi warned against “a slide into chaos.”
