Egypt, Algeria, Tunisia to discuss Libyan crisis in Algiers

The Libyan crisis will be on the agenda of a meeting in Algeria in June, with the participation of foreign ministers of Algeria, Tunisia and Egypt, spokesperson of Algerian Foreign Ministry, Abdelaziz Benali Cherif, said in a statement on Sunday.

“The upcoming meeting is part of continuous consultations between Algeria, Tunisia and Egypt over the crisis hitting Libya since 2011. Foreign ministers of the three nations are due to meet in Algiers to assess the political and security developments there,” noted Benali Cherif.

He added that the ministers will also assess “peace efforts being made by Libyan warring parties, neighboring countries and the international community, in a bid to help the Libyan parties reach sustainable settlement of the crisis.”

Algeria held earlier on May the 11th ministerial meeting of Libya’s neighboring nations, as the participants reiterated their support for a political settlement of the crisis.

The meeting gathered representatives of the six neighboring nations of Libya, including Tunisia, Algeria, Niger, Chad, Sudan and Egypt, in addition to representatives of the United Nations, the African Union, the Arab League and the European Union.

Libya has been suffering political division, insecurity and chaos since the uprising of 2011 that toppled the country’s former leader Muammar Gaddafi.
