According to a statement by the Egyptian FM, Shoukry stressed the importance of avoiding complicating or escalating the situation in Libya through any foreign intervention in the war-torn country.

He also called for boosting all efforts to reach a complete political settlement and support the efforts of the UN special envoy as well as to continue the preparation for the Berlin conference.
