Shoukry also asked the UN Secretary General to take a position on the “illegitimacy of the Government of National Unity (GNU) in Libya” as it was appointed as a result of a UN-brokered agreement.

Shoukry said the UN shouldn’t be a silent spectator of what it has brokered, referring to the GNU in Libya, which came into office after a UN-led Libyan Political Dialogue Forum in 2021, adding that the international community should fulfill the calls for legitimacy in Libya as per the Security Council’s resolutions. He also said the GNU in Tripoli “isn’t mandated to sign international agreements or MoUs.”

Shoukry reaffirmed the need for mercenaries, foreign fighters, and foreign forces to depart Libya within a specific timeframe and emphasised the importance of holding presidential elections while supporting the efforts of the House of Representatives (HoR).

He also described to the Greek Foreign Minister Egypt’s efforts toward Libyan parties and the ongoing discussions on finding a constitutional basis for elections.

The Greek Foreign Minister stated that the GNU’s role as a representative of the Libyan people had ended and that it was no longer able to sign international treaties.

He added that Egypt and Greece were working to stabilise the Mediterranean area and restore stability to Libya. He claimed that the world community has rejected the GNU-Turkey MoU as being unlawful.
