Stating that all countries compromise upon non-interference with domestic issues of Libya, Gheit said “Germany stated that every party that is interested in Libya, EU, and Arab League, to begin with, should be contributing. Germany further saw that Egypt should be also invited in order to protect its borders with Libya from scores of terrorists residing in that country.
