The Salvation Government has issued a statement decrying the “irresponsible” statement made by the Egyptian President, Abdel Fattah Al-Sisi, in which he said that Egyptian troops could enter Libya and occupy part of it to take advantage of its resources and fortunes to solve his economic problems.

The SG confirmed Thursday that Libyans are grandchildren, fathers, and brothers of martyrs and are able to protect their country from any attacker or occupier, especially after 17 February revolution, warning all those who cherish violating Libya’s sovereignty that they will find Libyans ready to secure and defend their homeland.

On Wednesday evening, Al-Sisi dropped a controversial statement sparking a big wave of outrage in Libya, when he said that his mother taught him not to be greedy and covet what others have, saying that despite hard times in Egypt, he did not do any evil by assaulting Libya and occupying it.

“I did not retaliate for the Egyptian Copts, who were decapitated in Sirte by IS, by occupying Libya and taking its fortunes even though I had and still have the chance to do so.” He declared.
