Libyan MPs hail Egypt's support to war torn state in face of terrorism


CAIRO – 14 August 2019: Libyan Parliament members have hailed the Egyptian state’s role in supporting Libya in the fight against terrorism and also backing the Parliament as the only elected legislative body.

Egypt has a great role in standing with Libya in the fight against terrorism, extremism and militias, and with the Libyan armed forces led by Khalifa Haftar, MP Assalheen Abdul Nabi said in press remarks on Tuesday.

Abdul Nabi hailed Egypt’s belief in the Libyan Parliament as the only legitimate body elected by the Libyan people and its authority to play the main role in any political process in solidarity with the General Command of the army.

MP Eissa al-Oreibi welcomed the statement issued earlier by the Egyptian Foreign Ministry on the situation in Libya, stressing that the five points included by the statement are pivotal and can be a base for a solution to the Libyan crisis.

In an interview with Egypt Today, Oreibi hailed the role played by the Egyptian state institutions to establish security and stability in Libya, pointing out that foreign interventions by some countries outside the region complicated the Libyan crisis.

Egypt hailed the humanitarian truce declared by Libyan parties on the occasion of Eid al-Adha, stressing that it is a positive step towards building confidence between Libyan parties, a Tuesday statement by Egyptian Foreign Ministry Spokesperson Ahmed Hafez said.

Hafez’s statement also reported that Egypt confirmed that putting an end to foreign interference, stopping support for armed militias and extremists, and eliminating terrorism and extremism are the only way to end chaos and restore security and stability in Libya.

The truce was reached following the United Nations Support Mission in Libya (UNSMIL) call upon the parties on August 8 to express their commitment to a humanitarian truce on the occasion of Eid al-Adha.

The statement also stressed that it is important that Libyan parties must reject foreign interference in Libya’s affairs and document violations to UN resolutions by countries that facilitate the smuggling of arms and terrorist fighters to Libya before the international community.

According to the statement, Egypt further calls upon the UNSMIL to cooperate more with the elected representatives of the Libyan people to develop the road map needed to get out of the current crisis and implement all the elements of the initiative approved by the Security Council in October 2017.

In the same context, Egypt condemned the recent terrorist bombing in Benghazi, expressing condolences to the victims’ families.
