Egyptian Foreign Minister Sameh Shukri has affirmed that the agreement signed between Libya and Turkey has affected the interests of other countries, but not Egypt.

Shukri added in a speech during the Rome dialogue that the situation in Libya does not bear additional complications.

"The Government of National Accord (GNA) must act within the frame work of the Libyan political agreement," Shukri said, claiming that the political agreement did not specify the authority of the GNA including, the signing of agreements.

He stressed that it is necessary for the GNA to abide by the political agreement, or it will lose its legitimacy, according to him.
