President Abdel Fattah El Sisi on Saturday headed for Germany to participate in an international conference on Libya, which will kick off on Sunday.
According to a statement by the presidential spokesman Bassam Rady, the conference will be attended by representatives of the five permanent members of the UN Security Council along with the states concerned with the Libyan crisis in addition to representatives for international and regional organizations.
Rady added that the Libyan Arab Armed Forces (LAAF) is a legitimate legal force that is led by General Khalifa Hafter, so Egypt supports him because it doesn’t support militias.
The conference will be also attended by Russian President Vladimir Putin, US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson, Algerian President Abdul Majeed Tebboune, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan and Arab League Secretary General Ahmed Abul Gheit.
Libya’s prime minister of the Government of National Accord Fayez al-Sarraj, Commander of the Libya National Army Khalifa Haftar and UN Envoy to Libya Ghassan Salame will also attend the international conference.
