Fahmy and Aziz in tete-a-tete discussion

The Libyan Foreign Minister, Nabil Fahmy, and his Egyptian counterpart, Mohamed Abdel Aziz, on Sunday in Cairo discussed ways and means of enhancing their countries’ bilateral cooperation, particularly their common border security, according to Libyan national television.

Abdel Aziz said that apart from the fact that Libya shares a common border with Egypt, the two countries have enjoyed ‘excellent historic and brotherly relations’.

The two ministers also agreed to enhance not only the economic, cultural and commercial relations but also their security cooperation through ensuring wider access of Egyptian firms and goods to Libyan markets and enabling both countries to benefit from each other’s experiences.

They also agreed on the necessity to reinforce their political dialogue on the regional issues and to put in place programmes likely to benefit the entire African continent.
