- LIBYA: The United States has looked to increase the pace of cooperation with Egypt to control some of the main joints in the eastern region of Libya, where oil is abundant. Washington’s increased involvement is linked to American reports on the influx of foreign mercenaries in Libya and wariness about Russia’s growing proximity to the oil crescent area. Egypt has for many years been closer to Moscow than Washington in dealing with the Libyan crisis.
