According to a statement by the foreign ministry, Shoukry affirmed to Dbeibah, who is the head of Libya's Government of National Unity (GNU), Egypt’s support of all efforts aiming at fully implementing the roadmap agreed upon by Libyans and ensuring the exit of all military and armed foreign troops from the country.

"This should come in a way that meets the aspirations of the Libyan people toward a better future and contributes to restoring Libyan security, stability, and territorial integrity and sovereignty," Shoukry said.
Delegates from 31 countries and international organisations are participating in the conference, including the UN, the European Union, the Arab League, and the African Union.
This includes Egypt, Algeria, Tunisia, Morocco, Sudan, Malta, Chad, Niger, Saudi Arabia, Qatar, UAE, Kuwait, Bahrain, Turkey, the United States, Britain, the Netherlands, France, Spain, Germany, Italy, Greece, Switzerland, Russia, China, and DR Congo.
The Tripoli conference comes two months ahead of planned parliamentary and presidential elections, which are scheduled for 24 December as part of the political roadmap agreed to by all Libyan parties in a United Nations-led peace process.
Egypt has affirmed on several occasions the necessity of holding the Libyan elections on schedule, as a step toward ending the decade-long of conflict in the country.
On Monday, President Abdel-Fattah El-Sisi stressed to German Chancellor Angela Merkel the necessity of moving forward with the political process in Libya, holding elections in the country in December, and the exit of all foreign forces from the country.
In September, Libya's eastern-based parliament passed a no-confidence vote in the Libyan unity government, posing a new challenge for holding the planned elections. The vote, however, failed to secure the minimum legal threshold to oust the government.
The Egyptian foreign minister stressed at the time that the roadmap agreed upon by the Libyan Political Dialogue Forum and supported by the UN Security Council remains as the approach adopted by the international community to end the conflict in Libya.
Shoukry also met today with Libyan Foreign Minister Najla Mangoush as well as his counterparts from Tunisia, Algeria, Greece, and Chad on the sidelines of the conference. 
Bilateral relations
Shoukry and Dbeibah also followed up during the meeting on developments of Egyptian-Libyan relations in light of the latest round of meetings of the Egyptian-Libyan joint higher committee in September.
Dbeibah hailed Egypt’s role and supportive efforts to achieve stability in Libya, advance political settlement, and bring the views of Libyan parties closer.
