The Address | Benghazi – Libya
ALGIERS -Egypt’s Foreign Minister Sameh Shoukry took part on Thursday in a meeting of Libya’s neighboring countries in Algeria, alongside the foreign ministries of Tunisia, Sudan, Chad, Niger, Mali and Algeria.
Shoukry asserted during the meeting that Egypt is keen on supporting the security and stability of Libya and its neighbors, adding that the Berlin Conference on Libya was successful in offering a roadmap for a political solution to ongoing violence in the war-torn country.
Shoukry praised Algeria for hosting Thursday’s meeting, which he said aims at supporting ongoing coordination between neighboring countries, the European Union, Russia, and the United States in order to reach a political settlement to the Libyan crisis.
The meeting explored the latest developments in Libya, which include Recep Tayyip Erdogan’s announcement that he would begin Turkish troop deployments to Libya last Thursday, a move that Egypt and the Arab League have opposed.
