Egyptian President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi called for the withdrawal of all "foreign powers" from Libya, saying that "certain foreign countries are in control of the decision of one of the parties to the Libyan conflict and will not allow a ceasefire."

Al-Sisi warned that "there are external forces that support terrorist groups in Libya," adding that "the Libyan parliament is the only party elected by the people."

This came during the visit by Al-Sisi on Saturday, to the elements of the western military region, in the presence of the Commander in Chief of the Egyptian armed forces, according to the Egyptian Al-Ahram newspaper.
