Egyptian President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi will travel to Paris tomorrow, Friday, to attend a conference on Libya and hold talks with French President Emmanuel Macron, the Egyptian presidency said in a statement.

The conference is organized by the United Nations, Germany and Italy and takes place before the elections in Libya, which are scheduled for December 24.

Egypt, which sees economic opportunities in Libya and has re-established a presence in the capital Tripoli, has called for elections despite disputes between Libyan factions over them.

Egypt has backed forces under commander Khalifa Haftar based in eastern Libya after a previous vote in 2014 escalated into a conflict that effectively divided the country into two rival camps, east and west.
