Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak made a surprise five- hour visit to Libya and met with Libyan leader Moammar Gadhafi to discuss next month's peace talks between Sudan's government and Darfur rebels, the semiofficial Middle East News Agency reported Tuesday.
MENA quoted Egyptian presidential spokesman, Suleiman Awwad, as saying Mubarak and Gadhafi expressed eagerness to fully support the Oct. 27 peace talks to be held in Libya.
Awwad also said Mubarak and Gadhafi talked about new restrictions placed on Egyptians who want to travel to Libya.
"President Mubark expressed Egypt's concern about its sons working there and that the new measures would be reconsidered," Awwad said, expressing hope that restrictions would be removed.
