Some pro-Muslim Brotherhood figures from Libya will attend a Libyan tribal leaders' meeting scheduled to start in Cairo on Monday, an Egyptian newspaper reported Sunday.

"This is the first time pro-Muslim Brotherhood figures from Libya will attend a meeting in Cairo," the website of the state-owned Ahram newspaper said.

Around 300 Libyan tribal figures are expected to attend the three-day meeting that will seek to find solutions to the crisis in Libya.

Ahram said that Egypt had previously opposed the presence of pro-Muslim Brotherhood figures in Libya's national dialogue talks.

The newspaper added that Egyptian Foreign Minister Sameh Shoukry had delivered a message to this effect to Algerian officials during a recent visit to Algeria.

The Egyptian Foreign Ministry, meanwhile, said in a statement that Egypt would host the meeting to aid Libya's "legitimate parliament" in Tobruk and its government to reach consensus.

It added that this would contribute to the success of ongoing United Nations-sponsored dialogue in Libya.
