The Libyan Address Journal

Egyptian Foreign Minister Sameh Shoukry said that the transfer of terrorists to Libya poses a threat to Egypt and the Eastern Mediterranean region, stressing that his country “will not tolerate any threat.”

Shukri said during a video conference of the Security Council that “achieving stability in Libya will be by forming a government that is agreed upon by all Libyans, by dismantling militias, combating terrorism, uniting the army, and a fair distribution of wealth.”

“Egypt calls for this until a political and peaceful solution is achieved … It is important for the international community to do everything in its power to achieve stability in Libya,” he added.

On the other hand, the Egyptian Minister of Foreign Affairs stated that ISIS “has recently re-emerged in Libya and this is regrettable.”

“I take the opportunity to say that the international community is obligated to fight terrorist groups in Libya and to condemn any support provided to them,” Shoukry said.

“The transfer of terrorist fighters to Libya poses a threat to the eastern Mediterranean and Egypt, and we will not tolerate any threat,” he added.

In conclusion, he expressed his hope that “the Libyans will get rid of foreign interference and return to normal life.”
