CAIRO- Egypt's military ruler Field Marshal Hussein Tantawi visits Libya on Monday to boost ties between the two neighbouring countries where popular protests have unseated veteran leaders, officials said. It will be Tantawi's first state visit abroad since the Supreme Council of the Armed Forces (SCAF), which he heads, took over following the ouster of president Hosni Mubarak in February after an 18-day revolt. "The visit is aimed at finding new horizons for cooperation and for contributing to the reconstruction of Libya," a military official said. Tantawi will be preceded to Tripoli by a high-powered delegation of cabinet ministers and businessmen, and talks with Libya's National Transitional Council leaders will focus on infrastructure and reconstruction projects.
