The Libyan Foreign Ministry condemned the statement made by the Egyptian Foreign Ministry spokesman relating to Libya, describing it as blatant interference in the work of the Government of National Accord (GNA).

"The Egyptian Foreign Ministry spokesman is ignoring what Haftar is committing and the foreign countries supporting him and obstructing the political agreement," the Libyan Foreign Ministry stated.

The ministry also condemned the Egyptian Foreign Ministry's call to the UN mission to get more engaged with the elected representatives of the Libyan people, in a clear disregard for the bodies emanating from the political agreement.

The Egyptian statement said the Tobruk-based House of Representatives was the only legitimately elected body in Libya and the only entity to decide on a way out of the crisis, as well as to devise constitutional basis for elections.
