He called for positive and constructive interaction among all Libyan parties by way of the Berlin Conference and the Cairo Declaration, in order to hold presidential and parliamentary elections that will lead to a new phase.
For his part, Johnson expressed his support for the Egyptian efforts to settle the Libyan crisis.
On Middle East peace process, Al-Sisi and Johnson underlined the importance of pushing collective international action toward resuming negotiations between Palestinians and Israelis.
