Shoukry discussed with his counterparts the escalation of Turkish activities concerning Libya, it is added.

It is also noted that Foreign Ministers are in agreement about the dangerous repercussions of the latest developments, following Turkey’s decision to send troops to Libya, affecting Arab national security, as well as the security in the Mediterranean and the whole region, the Egyptian MFA notes.
