Egypt's President Abdel-Fattah El-Sisi received a phone call from his French counterpart Emmanuel Macron on Sunday to discuss several regional issues, including developments in Libya.

The two leaders also discussed ways of enhancing bilateral cooperation and other regional issues, El-Sisis’s spokesman Bassam Rady said in a statement, with Macron praising Egypt’s efforts to restore stability and to unify Libya's military.

Libyan factions are set to meet on Tuesday in Paris to agree on a political roadmap to resolve disputed issues, to pave the way for UN-backed elections this year.

The Egyptian president affirmed Cairo's commitment to supporting efforts to reach a political settlement in Libya, stressing the importance of good preparation and of holding the Libyan elections this year.

El-Sisi and Macron also affirmed the necessity of combining international efforts to push forward the political settlement efforts in Syria and end the humanitarian suffering of the Syrian people.
