Egyptian Foreign Minister Sameh Shoukry told United Nations Secretary-General Antonio Guterres on Friday that Egypt supports a political solution to the Libya crisis, away from external interventions seeking to control the country.

During a phone conversation, Shoukry reviewed with Guterres Egypt's stance in supporting a Libyan-Libyan political solution, the Egyptian foreign ministry said in a statement.

Shoukry also affirmed Egypt's keenness to maintain regular coordination with the United Nations Support Mission in Libya (UNSMIL) to push for a political solution based on the recently issued Cairo Declaration and the principles and conclusions adopted by the Berlin Summit.

The Egyptian minister highlighted the important role played by the United Nations in the Libyan crisis, calling on all countries to cooperate with the UN to "achieve the Libyan people's legitimate objectives and aspirations."
