(MENAFN - #Kuwait News Agency (KUNA)) Italy's Foreign Minister Federica Mogherini and her Egyptian counterpart Sameh Shoukri on Wednesday called for an end to the infighting in #Libya and the formation of a national unity government that reflects the will of all Libyans.

At a joint press conference here following her talks with Shoukri, Mogherini said that they had discussed the developments in the region, especially the #Libya crisis.

She stressed the dire need to exert diplomatic efforts to stop the armed conflict in the country and pave the way for the political process.

Mogherini, who will take over as #EuropeanUnion (EU) foreign policy chief next month, said that the real threat facing #Libya is the break-up of state and the existence of conflicting institutions lacking the ability to administer the country.

For Mogherini, the Libyan parliament produced by the June 25 elections represents legitimacy in the country. She urged it to deliver "an inclusive message to all parties to rule the country together" through a national unity government in line with the UNSC resolution 2174.

She said that Rome is readyo cooperate with the #Libya neighbors to rebuild the country.


In the meantime, the Italian FM lauded Egypt's fruitful efforts leading to a halt of the Israeli war on Gaza.

For his part, Shoukri highlighted Cairo's grave concern over developments in Libya, saying #Egypt is keen on its eastern neighbor's unity and territorial integrity and that it supports the elected institutions there.

Egypt is willing to cooperate with #Italy on the #Libya crisis, he said, noting that the outcome of the #Libya neighbors conference held in Cairo last month offered a political ground for these efforts.

On Gaza Shoukri said that #Egypt hopes for guaranteeing a permanent stop of the Israeli aggressions on Gaza that could lead eventually to a settlement of the conflict and establishing a Palestinian State based on the pre-1967 borders with East Jerusalem as a capital.

Meanwhile, both Ministers condemned the crimes committed by the Islamic State in #Iraq and the Levant (ISIL).

Mogherini stressed the necessity of forming an Iraqi government that could face the ISIL threats and secure a unified and stable future for the country.
