These schools are not subject to the Libyan embassy's supervision, Jibril said.
Libyan February 17 private schools, include 1,200 students were closed down for working without legal licenses, he added.
The minister stressed that Egypt does not mind to open any private school, after getting necessary licenses.
The minister agreed that the Libyan embassy will submit a request to supervise the school's main branch until the end of the current academic year.
