Egypt's Chief of Staff Mahmoud Hegazy and special representative of the UN secretary-general in Libya Martin Kobler discussed recent efforts to reach national consensus between factions in the war-torn country, Egypt's army said in a statement on Sunday.

The meeting, which was held in Cairo, reviewed the results of recent meetings facilitated by a national dialogue committee created by Egypt to bridge differences between various rival factions.

“Egypt supports an end to the Libyan crisis that preserves Libyan state unity, territorial security and bolster stability,” the statement said.

Meanwhile, Kobler urged continuous regional and international efforts to resolve the six-year-old crisis.

Two rival governments are competing for power in Libya – the UN-backed Government of National Accord (GNA), based in Tripoli, and the House of Representatives in the eastern city of Tobruk.
