The spokesman for the Egyptian Presidency, Ambassador Bassam Radi, said that President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi reviewed with President Donald Trump on Thursday a number of regional issues of mutual concern, especially the situation in Libya.

Radi added that the Egyptian president affirmed Egypt's support for the unity, stability and security of Libya, as well as Egypt's support for the Libyan National Army's efforts to combat terrorism and eliminate armed groups and militias that pose a threat not only to Libya but to regional security.

"For his part, President Trump stressed the importance of stepping out of the current situation and resolving the Libyan crisis, which represents a threat to the security of the region as a whole, and agreed on the need to intensify joint efforts in this regard," Radi concluded.
