Italian Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte will arrive in Egypt on Monday to meet with Egyptian President Abdel-Fattah El-Sisi, Italian news agency Agenzia Nova reported.

Prime Minister Conte and President El-Sisi will discuss the crisis in Libya and the conflict de-escalation efforts by mediating countries.

The news agency added that the Italian prime minister will also visit Turkey on Monday to discuss the Libyan crisis with Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan before heading to Egypt.

For weeks, diplomatic efforts have been taken to de-escalate tensions in Libya amid Turkish plans to send troops to the country, which have been denounced by Western powers.

Libya's warring parties, the eastern forces loyal to Commander Khalifa Haftar and the internationally recognised Government of National Accord (GNA), have agreed to a ceasefire that started on Sunday following calls by Turkey and Russia for a truce.
