Neighbours to meet in Algiers on Libya crisis

  • The foreign ministers of Tunisia, Egypt, Sudan, Chad and Niger as well as Mali are expected to attend the meeting

ALGIERS: Foreign ministers of states neighbouring Libya are to meet Thursday in Algiers as part of international efforts to reach a political settlement to the country's conflict, the foreign ministry announced.
The foreign ministers of Tunisia, Egypt, Sudan, Chad and Niger as well as Mali are expected to attend the meeting, organised at the initiative of Algiers, the ministry said in a statement.
It said the aim would be to advance "a political settlement to the crisis through an inclusive dialogue between all parties".
"The latest developments in Libya will be reviewed... to allow our Libyan brothers to resolve the crisis in their country free of interference of any kind."
Algeria, which has maintained a neutral stance between the warring parties, and Libya share a border of almost 1,000 kilometres (620 miles).
Algiers has hosted a string of foreign leaders and envoys for talks on the Libyan conflict, including Italian Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte and the top diplomats of Egypt, France, Italy and Turkey.
Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan is expected in the Algerian capital on Sunday at the start of a two-day visit.
Last Sunday, world leaders at a meeting in Berlin committed to ending all foreign meddling in Libya and to uphold a weapons embargo as part of a broader plan to end the conflict.
