Egypt’s President Abdel-Fattah El-Sisi stressed Cairo’s support for efforts to reach a political solution to the Libyan crisis in a phone call with Italian Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte on Friday.

In an official statement, El-Sisi’s spokesman Bassam Rady said the president received a phone call from Conte.

El-Sisi affirmed Egypt’s support for a political settlement in Libya under the country’s position on the unity of Libyan territory, support for its national institutions, and respect for the will of its people.

“This will contribute to the return of stability and security in the Middle East,” the statement added.

They also exchanged viewpoints on a number of regional issues of common interest, as well as on bilateral ties.

Conte affirmed his keenness to boost bilateral cooperation with Egypt in various fields as part of fruitful cooperation witnessed by the two countries in the past years.
