Egyptian Foreign Minister Sameh Shoukry discussed the latest developments in Libya with Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi by phone on Friday, the Egyptian foreign ministry said.

Shoukry spoke about the committed Egyptian positions in its stance on Libya, above all preserving the country’s unity and security through working to reach a political solution to the conflict, and to helping to establish the country’s national institutions.

He said that Egypt had sought to achieve this through the Cairo Declaration, which aimed to reach a ceasefire and a political solution to the crisis through an intra-Libyan agreement that would reflect the Libyan people's will, in line with the outcome of the Berlin conference.

Shoukry also stressed the importance of halting the transfer of foreign fighters and terrorists to Libya and to halting foreign intervention in the country, which has led to escalation, endangering regional security.

The two officials also discussed Egyptian-Chinese relations and issues of mutual interest.
