Egypt-Libyan Relations Are Strong - Foreign Minister

Foreign Minister Mohamed Amr stressed that the Egyptian-Libyan relations are good and strong, adding that Egypt does not accept any hostile activity against Libya launched from its territories.

Libya has asked Egypt to hand some elements belonging to the former regime of Muammar Gaddafi, Amr said, noting that Egypt approves the request, especially that there is an extradition treaty between the two countries.

The minister's statements came to comment on reports about disputes between Egypt and Libya over the extradition of Libyan ex-regime figures.
