Sisi tells PM Dbeibeh Egypt ready to participate in implementing developmental projects in Libya
Posted – 14th March 2021
Egyptian President Abdel Fattah El-Sisi affirmed in a phone call with Libyan Prime Minister Abdulhamid Dbeibeh on Saturday that Egypt is ready to implement developmental projects in Libya as a priority for the Libyan people.
Sisi affirmed Egypt’s full support to the Libyan government under Dbeibeh and voiced Egypt’s readiness to introduce the Egyptian experience in the fields that would help achieve political stability in Libya, Presidential Spokesman Bassam Radi said.
Sisi also stressed his confidence in Dbeibeh’s ability to manage the current transitional period, achieve comprehensive reconciliation among Libyans and unify the state institutions in preparation for holding national elections in December.
The president congratulated Dbeibeh as his government obtained the Libyan parliament’s confidence, saying this step represents a prominent historic step on the way of settling the Libyan crisis.
Dbeibeh, for his part, expressed thanks to President Sisi and appreciation for the Egyptian sincere role and tireless efforts to settle the Libyan crisis.
Dbeibeh underscored the special brotherly relations between Egypt and Libya and the historic ties gathering their peoples.
The Libyan prime minister expressed keenness to continue boosting cooperation, consultation and intensive coordination with Egypt, the spokesman added.
On February 6, Libyan delegates at UN-facilitated talks chose Dbeibeh as a prime minister-designate, along with a three-member presidency council, to govern the war-ravaged North African country until the December elections.
Mohammad Younes Menfi became the new president of the presidency council in the unity administration, following the vote held outside Geneva and announced by former UN envoy Stephanie Williams.
Egypt welcomed the step and expressed its aspiration to work with the new Libyan interim authority over the coming period until transferring the power to an elected government in the elections due to convene on December 24, 2021.
