BEIRUT, LEBANON (12:20 P.M.) – Egyptian President Abdel Fattah El-Sisi announced that Libya will only be defended by its people, indicating that Egypt is ready to train and equip the people in the North African nation.

The Egyptian President indicated that the situation has now differed, stressing that the equation of Arab national security and Egyptian and Libyan national security is currently shaking.

He stressed that Egypt is ready to make the necessary sacrifices and honorable stances, saying:

“If we say the forces are moving forward, the forces and the tribal elders will advance at the head and when the matter is over, the forces will come out in peace because we do not want anything but the security, stability and peace of Libya.”

He added that any direct interference from the Egyptian state has international legitimacy, whether within the framework of the United Nations Charter, or based on the sole legitimate authority elected by the Libyan people (parliament) and its goals will be to protect and secure the western borders of the state with its strategic depth from the threats of terrorist and mercenary militias.

Egypt has been one of the main backers of the Libyan National Army (LNA) and while they have aided their forces, Cairo has refrained from directly intervening in the war-torn nation.
