President Sisi greets freed Ethiopians from Libya

President Sisi along with the Ethiopian Ambassador to Cairo received 27 Ethiopians who were kidnapped in Libya.

The captives were freed following coordinated efforts between Egypt and Ethiopia.

“Ethiopia may not have borders with Libya, but it has a sister which does,” said President Al-Sisi.

Egyptian security authorities negotiated with Libyan “parties in control of certain areas” successfully, said state media.

President Sisi stated that Egypt had been burdened after the “Islamic State” terrorist organisation killed 20 Christian Ethiopians in Libya. Egyptian President Sisi has repeatedly called for international efforts to combat militants in Libya.

Egypt-Ethiopian ties have improved following recent tension over Nile River water following the ‘Ethiopian Renaissance’ dam project.
