Egyptian Foreign Minister Sameh Shoukry stressed the importance of holding presidential and parliamentary elections in Libya simultaneously while preserving Libyans ownership of the political solution.

This came during a telephone conversation on Tuesday evening with French Foreign Minister Jean-Yves Le Drian, according to a statement by the Egyptian Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

Shoukry also called for stopping foreign interference and expelling all foreign forces, mercenaries and foreign fighters, without exception, within a specific time frame in accordance with the outputs of the Berlin agreements and Paris Summit.

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