President Abdel Fattah El Sisi on Tuesday6/11/2018 confirmed that any role of armed militias in conflict-hit countries is unacceptable.
At a meeting with foreign media in Egypt, he said that such a role is also unacceptable in guaranteeing regional security.
The meeting was held on the sidelines of the World Youth Forum, now in session.
President Sisi added that Egypt is backing the Libyan army since it is the national army that is supposed to keep security and stability in Libya.
The continuation of the current turmoil in Libya attracts terrorists from Syria to Libya's fragile regions, threatening the country's neighboring Arab, African and European countries, he warned.
President Sisi called for totally or partially lifting the arms embargo imposed on the Libyan army by the UN Security Council since 2011 to support its capabilities.
