Sisi declares support for Hafter in Cairo talks – Al Marsad

Libya, 14 April 2019 – Egyptian President Abdel Fattah El-Sisi declared his support for Field Marshal Khalifa Hafter during talks between the two in Cairo on Sunday on the latest developments in the situation in Libya.

“We support the efforts of combating terrorism and extremist groups to achieve security and stability for all Libyan people throughout the whole country”, El-Sisi was quoted in the Egyptian press as saying.

He was also reported to have told Hafter of Egypt’s keenness to see the establishment of a stable and sovereign civil state and to begin rebuilding and promoting Libya in various fields in response to the aspirations of the Libyan people.

No other details about the talks have been released.   Significantly, though, pictures show the meeting was also attended by head of the Egyptian intelligence service, Maj.-Gen. Abbas Kamal.

The talks followed Sisi’s return from Washington where the White House announced that the US was working with Egypt on issues affecting regional stability.
