Egypt goes on Libya diplo blitz as Turkey warns against military intervention

Egypt rallies int’l support on Libya as Turkey says ceasefire is contingent on Haftar’s withdrawal: President Abdel Fattah El Sisi led outreach to top officials in China, Greece, and Ukraine to discuss the situation in Libya after the House of Representatives voted last week to give the military the green light to deploy troops to the war torn country. The diplomatic drive came as Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan’s top security adviser Ibrahim Kalin warned Egypt against military intervention and reiterated Ankara’s demands for Khalifa Haftar to withdraw his forces from key positions such as the city of Sirte, which Egypt has said is a red line.

IFC to launch new program to support closing the gender gap in Egypt: The International Finance Corporation will launch a new program to encourage the private sector to integrate women into the workforce, according to a statement by the International Cooperation Ministry. The program will last for three years and comes as a support to a newly launched program in cooperation with the National Council for Women to combat gender inequality in the workplace. The IFC program will cooperate with the Egyptian Businessmen Association to provide more flexible and inclusive work environments to accommodate women. It will also see an education platform launched to raise awareness and share knowledge about how women can better access the labor market in cooperation with the Dutch government.
