CAIRO, Apr 25 (NNN-MENA) – Egyptian Foreign Minister, Sameh Shoukry and his Libyan counterpart, Najla al-Mangoush, discussed yesterday, ways to boost bilateral relations.

During a phone conversation, the two officials exchanged visions on the latest developments in Libya, the Egyptian Foreign Ministry said.

Shoukry also invited al-Mangoush to visit Egypt at the earliest opportunity, so as to resume consultations and coordination aimed at strengthening stability in Libya.
