Tunis, 28 November 2015:
The crisis in Libya was the main subject in talks in Tunis yesterday between Tunisia . . .[restrict]Foreign Minister, Taieb Baccouche, and Algeria’s Minister of Maghreb Affairs, the African Union and the Arab League, Abdelkader Messahel.
Officially, according to the Algerian authorities, Messahel was in Tunis to assure the Tunisia government of Algeria’s support in its battle against terrorism following Tuesday’s terrorist attack in the city which killed 13 policemen. However, according to the Tunisian news agency TAP, the two ministers concentrated on how they could jointly support Libyan reconciliation. Both reaffirmed their backing for the proposed Government of National Accord to be led by Faiez Serraj and the efforts of the new UN special envoy Martin Kobler to get it installed and bring about peace in Libya.
The meeting was three days before a gathering in Algiers of all Libya’s six neighbouring states – Algeria, Tunisia, Niger, Chad, Sudan and Egypt – to discuss the latest Libyan development and coordinate their responses.
A Libyan delegation will also take part. There have been reports that it would be led by Serraj. However, his media office in Cairo today suggested that this would not be the case. [/restrict]
