Egypt and Saudi Arabia have renewed their support for the Libyan Parliament as they praised the agreement between the House of Representatives (HoR) and the High Council of State (HCS) on the draft constitutional document.

The Saudi Foreign Minister, Prince Faisal bin Farhan bin Abdullah, and his Egyptian counterpart Sameh Shoukri chaired in Riyadh on Thursday the meeting of their joint follow-up and political consultation committee.

Both parties praised the role of the HoR and HCS in "fulfilling the conditions that allow Libya to move towards a better future."

They affirmed their support for the 5 + 5 Joint Military Committee, calling for the exit of foreign fighters and mercenaries from Libya within a specific timeframe, besides dissolving militias in pursuance of the relevant UN Security Council resolutions and Berlin and Paris tracks.

Prince Faisal had talked earlier about an Arab and international consensus on the need for foreign forces to leave Libya.
