Libyan Prime Minister Ali Zeidan arrived in Cairo on Thursday night ahead of scheduled talks with top Egyptian officials on Friday.

Zeidan is scheduled to hold talks with Interim President Adly Mansour, Prime Minister Hazem El-Beblawi and Defence Minister Abdel Fattah Al-Sisi.

He and the delegation he led were received in Cairo by Aviation Minister Abdul Aziz Fadel and Libyan Ambassador to Cairo Mohamed Fayez Gibreel.

Zeidan met with Foreign Minister Nabil Fahmy on Wednesday on the sidelines of the African Union Summit in Addis Ababa.

His visit comes after the release of six Egyptian embassy workers who were kidnapped in Libya by an unknown group last Friday and Saturday.
