Egyptian President Abdel Fattah Al-Sisi and British Prime Minister Boris Johnson agreed on Thursday to "support the existing political track in Libya in order to hold elections on their scheduled date" on December 24.

This came during a phone call that Al-Sisi received from Johnson, which touched on bilateral relations between the two countries, and several regional issues, including the Libyan file, according to a statement issued by the Egyptian presidential spokesman.

The spokesman said that Al-Sisi and Johnson also stressed "the importance of the exit of all foreign forces and mercenaries from Libyan territory."

Al-Sisi had previously stressed, during his September meeting with US National Security Adviser Jake Sullivan in Cairo, “the importance of holding the Libyan elections on time,” noting “the importance that Egypt attaches to the success of the political track and the withdrawal of all foreign forces from Libya."
