Egypt will seek to participate actively in the reconstruction of Libya and will send a high-level delegation to Tripoli for that purpose by the end of the month. Of primary importance for Egypt is finding work for many of its unemployed citizens.
Meantime, Egyptian authorities have warned their citizens to avoid falling into a trap of accepting fraudulent contracts issued under the name of the defunct regime "al-Jamahiriya" and said that all new legitimate contracts will be issued by "Free Libya."
The new Libyan authorities have announced that they will give Egyptian workers priority for employment in Libya, followed by Tunisians.
