Ahram Online , Monday 12 Nov 2018

Egypt’s President Abdel-Fattah El-Sisi will head to Italy on Monday attend a summit on the Libyan crisis in Palermo.

In official statements to the press, El-Sisi’s spokesman Bassam Rady said El-Sisi will head to Palermo for a two-day visit, after an invitation by Italian Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte.

The invitation comes a few days after both El-Sisi and Conte spoke on the phone, during which El-Sisi stressed Egypt’s position that the unity of Libyan territory should be preserved, support for its national institutions, respect for the will of the people, which will contribute to the return of stability and security in the Middle East.

The Palermo conference will bring together key political Libyan factions and international partners in the latest bid by the international community to solve the continuing Libyan crisis and proceed with a plan to hold planned elections in the country.
