Egypt is following with deep concern the negative and grave developments in Libya during the past days, especially the violent clashes currently taking place in the capital Tripoli and its suburbs, the Egyptian foreign ministry said in a statement on Monday.

The statement added that Egypt stressed the importance of restoring stability in Libya and the need for the Libyan state institutions, including the Libyan armed forces and security authorities, to do their duties in safeguarding the interests of the Libyan people.

The Egyptian foreign ministry also reiterated the need for the Libyan institutions to protect Libya from the chaos caused by militias in order to allow the Libyan people to reclaim control over their country's wealth and build a unified and stable modern Libyan state.

According to Libyan health ministry, at least 47 people have been killed in rival militia clashes over the past week in Tripoli.
