Egypt to take part in international conference on Libya

Egypt will participate in an international conference on how to support Libya's Interim Transitional National Council, the Egyptian state-run news agency MENA reported Tuesday.

Egypt will participate as an observer in the council's fourth meeting in Istanbul on Friday. Rebels in eastern Libya formed the interim council after Libyan leader Muammar Qadhafi's forces evacuated from the region. Several foreign countries treat the council as Libya's legitimate point of contact.

Ambassador Ayman Mesharrafa, assistant deputy foreign minister for the Maghreb affairs, will represent Egypt in the meeting. The meeting will focus on a reconstruction plan for Libya and how to financially support the council.

Egypt took part in an earlier meeting for the contact group on Libya last month in the Emirati capital of Abu Dhabi.
