Tunis, 29 November 2015:
Foreign minster Mohamed Dairi and UN Special Envoy Martin Kobler are to take part in . . .[restrict]the seventh foreign ministerial meeting of Libya’s neighbours which will take place in Algiers on Tuesday.
The last neighbour’s meeting was at the end of July in the Chadian capital N’Djamena.
This will be the first time that any UN Libya Special Envoy has attended the meetings and Kobler’s decision to do so is seen as part of his bid to rally ensure maximum international pressure on the two main sides in the Libyan divide to accept the Libya Dialogue deal and the proposed Government of National Accord.
In the past week, Kobler has travelled to Italy, Qatar, the UAE, France, Tunisia and Cairo for talks with foreign ministers to that end. He also met with the UK’s foreign secretary Philip Hammond in Tunis on Friday. He is expected to continue his travels with a visit to Turkey this week.
There is strong international support for the deal, and the Algiers meeting is expected to reiterate it. However, the problem is in Libya where opposition to it is strong and has prevented any endorsement by either the House of Representatives or the General National Congress.
The Arab League, EU and African Union are also attending the Algiers meeting. [/restrict]
