Egyptian President Abdel Fattah Al-Sisi and Algerian President Abdelmadjid Tebboune stressed the need to “not allow the aspirations of the Libyan people to be thwarted” in holding presidential and parliamentary elections.

According to the Egyptian presidential spokesman, the two leaders discussed developments in the Libyan file during a Cairo meeting on Tuesday. 

The statement indicated that the two presidents agreed to intensify the coordination of visions and positions between the two countries regarding the Libyan crisis, "with the sensitivity for the current time," stressing the importance of continuing to support efforts aimed at working on Libya's stability, unity, territorial integrity and "preserving its national institutions."

Al-Sisi and Tebboune noted the need to remove all foreign forces, mercenaries and foreign fighters from Libyan territory, as this has a "direct impact on Egyptian and Algerian national security.”

They also called for the need to push for an end to the transitional phase and not allow the aspirations of the Libyan people to hold presidential and parliamentary elections to be thwarted.

The Algerian president arrived in Cairo on Monday for a two-day official visit.
