The Egyptian Foreign Minister Sameh Shoukry has received a delegation from the European Parliament, headed by member of the Foreign Affairs Committee and the Parliament's Subcommittee on Human Rights, Thierry Mariani.

The meeting discussed several regional files of common interest, including the Libyan crisis, in which Cairo is a key partner, the Egyptian Foreign Ministry said in a statement.

The meeting comes a day after the Libyan House of Representatives approved the amendment of the 13th constitutional declaration, which Egypt welcomed immediately and considered it an important step for holding presidential and parliamentary elections.
