France, Egypt seek UNSC meeting on Libya

Paris : French President Francois Hollande and his Egyptian counterpart Abdel Fattah al-Sisi Monday called for an urgent UN Security Council meeting on Libya''s security situation and urged adequate measures to halt the ongoing Islamic State (IS) offensive.

Over a phone call, Hollande reiterated French support and solidarity with Egypt after the beheading of the 21 Egyptians in Libya by IS fighters, Xinhua news agency reported. The two leaders discussed the situation in Libya and the extension of military operations against the IS in the country.

They stressed the necessity of a Security Council meeting and adoption of mew measures by the international community to cope with this danger, Hollande''s office said in a statement. Hollande and al-Sisi also affirmed their commitment to guaranteeing peace and ensuring stability in the region.

The Egyptian military said it had conducted airstrikes on Islamic State targets in Libya Monday, a day after the group released a video purporting to show the beheading of 21 Egyptians in the neighbouring country.
