Tunisia, Egypt and Algeria call for national reconciliation in Libya

Tunisian, Egyptian and Algerian Foreign Ministers warned, on Tuesday at a tripartite meeting in Cairo, against the continued deterioration of the security, economic and social situation in Libya.

The ministers reaffirmed commitment to carry on effort to boost dialogue between the Libyan actors as part of a consensus to ensure that the higher interest of Libya prevails, preserve its unity and sovereignty and re-establish security and stability.

"A political solution is deemed necessary to get out of the status quo in Libya," they called, reaffirming willingness to help the Libyans succeed the forthcoming political events under the aegis of the UN Organisation and in accordance with the plan of Special Representative of the Secretary-General and Head of the United Nations Support Mission in Libya Ghassan Salamé.

A final declaration was issued at the end of the meeting reiterating the commitment of the three countries to continue supporting Libya in this delicate stage so as to reach a national reconciliation.

On this occasion, FM Khemaies Jhinaoui affirmed support to the reconciliation efforts in Libya, deeming it "necessary" to reach an inter-Libyan consensual solution sponsored by the UN. 

"All political settlement of the crisis should be inter-Libyan, sponsored by the UN organisation," he pointed out, reaffirming his outright rejection of all foreign interference in this war-torn country. 

It was agreed that the next tripartite meeting will be held in Tunis and will focus on the examination of the development of the situation in Libya and the prospects of a political settlement of the crisis as part of the tripartite initiative launched by President Beji Caid Essebsi.
