Foreign Minister Sameh Shoukry received a phone call on December 19th from the Italian Minister of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation Luigi Di Maio.
Foreign Ministry Spokesperson Counselor Ahmed Hafez, stated that the phone conversation tackled the latest developments of the crisis in Libya, as well as means to advance efforts aimed at restoring security and stability in the country, and supporting the preparations for the Berlin conference.
Di Maio briefed Minister Shoukry on the outcomes of his recent visit to Libya and the meetings he held there. In addition, the two ministers discussed the dangers of the current escalation due to the signing of two memoranda of understanding between the Turkish government and Fayez Al-Sarraj, as this step comprises a violation of the Skhirat Agreement, and contravenes endeavors seeking to reach a comprehensive settlement to the crisis in Libya.
Moreover, Shoukry and Di Maio agreed to strive towards encouraging the Libyan parties to immediately engage in full cooperation with the United Nations Envoy, in order to push ahead with the Berlin political track.
