Egypt pushes for political resolution in Libya at Algeria ministerial-level meeting

Egypt and Algeria pledged to continue to push for a resolution in Libya by attempting to reach a political settlement between Tripoli’s unity government and eastern Libyan leader Khalifa Haftar, in a meeting between Foreign Minister Sameh Shoukry and his Algerian counterpart Ramtane Lamamra yesterday in Algeria. The two ministers also agreed to continue improving bilateral ties and cooperation between Egypt and Algeria, Shoukry said in a press conference (watch, runtime: 1:37).

Shoukry is on a two-day visit to Algeria to attend a ministerial-level meeting of Libya’s neighbors, during which he called for the holding of “comprehensive and credible” national elections in Libya — according to a roadmap agreed on by both sides — that would put an end to the transitional period that saw conflict between the unity government and other Libyan factions. The FM also sat down separately with Libyan Foreign Minister Najla Mangoush and his Sudanese counterpart Mariam Al Mahdi.
