Egyptian Foreign Minister, Sameh Shoukry, discussed on Saturday with his French counterpart, Jean-Yves Le Drian, bilateral relations between the two countries, as well as a number of regional issues, particularly the situation in Libya.

This discussion came during a phone call hours after President al-Sisi said that any direct Egyptian intervention in Libya would have international legitimacy, according to a statement by the Egyptian Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

Al-Sisi made the statement in a televised speech while inspecting Egypt's Western Military Zone accompanied by the heads and elders of Libyan tribes, Egyptian Minister of Defence and General Commander of the Armed Forces Mohamed Zaki, Chief-of-Staff Mohamed Farid, as well as leaders of the main branches of the Egyptian Armed Forces.
