Egyptian Foreign Minister Sameh Shoukry discussed developments in Libya with his Austrian counterpart Alexander Schallenberg, where he confirmed Egypt's support for efforts to stabilize the ceasefire in all Libyan territory.

This came in a phone call between the two parties on Tuesday, where Shoukry indicated that his country is "seeking to achieve a tangible breakthrough in various tracks, in line with the outcomes of the Berlin Conference and the Cairo Declaration, with the aim of reaching a comprehensive and sustainable political settlement," according to the statement from the Egyptian Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

Over the past two days, the Egyptian city of Hurghada has hosted a round of direct security and military talks between two delegations that include army and police officers, representing both the Government of National Accord and the Libyan Arab Armed Forces.

At the conclusion of the talks, the participants agreed to a set of recommendations to be presented later to the "5 + 5" joint military committee, according to a statement by the United Nations Support Mission in Libya.
