Foreign Minister Sameh Shoukry underlined Saturday Egypt's stance regarding a settlement to the Libyan crisis, saying it should be achieved through inter-Libyan dialogue to maintain the unity and territorial integrity of the Arab country.

Shoukry's statements came during a meeting with UN envoy to Libya Ghassan Salamé, as they exchanged views regarding boosting prospects of a political settlement. They also discussed ways of fighting terrorism as a means to restore security and stability in Libya.

Salamé thanked Egypt for its role in supporting a political settlement to the Libyan crisis, foreign ministry spokesperson Ahmed Hafez said, adding that he looks forward to future cooperation with Egypt regarding the Libyan crisis.
