Lamamra: Libya's neighbours meeting part of sustained efforts to settle crisis

APS - 30 August 2021

ALGIERS- The minister of Foreign Affairs and National Community Abroad, Ramtane Lamamra, said Monday in Algiers that the ministerial meeting of Libya's neighbouring countries was part of the "sustained efforts our countries have constantly made to contribute to the settlement of the Libyan crisis."

"Our States are working collectively and individually to resolve the Libyan crisis, as we are convinced of the vital role the neighbouring countries should play," Lamamra said in an opening address at the ministerial meeting of Libya's neighbouring countries.

The reconciliation process in Libya "requires continuing efforts to complete the unification of the Libyan State institutions, the achievement of reconciliation and the departure of foreign forces and mercenaries from all Libyan territory," the head of Algerian Diplomacy added.

The Foreign ministers of Algeria, Libya, Tunisia, Egypt, Sudan, Niger, Chad and the Republic of Congo take part in the meeting, alongside the secretary-general of the Arab League, Ahmed Aboul Gheit, African Union Commissioner for Political Affairs, Peace and Security, Bankole Adeoye, and UN Secretary-General's Special Envoy for Libya, Jan Kubis.
