ALGIERS- Minister Counselor for Communication, official Spokesman of the Presidency of the Republic Belaid Mohand Oussaid affirmed Tuesday that Algeria is in favour of any initiative, regardless of its origin, aimed at ending the bloodshed among the Libyans.
“Algeria is in favour of any initiative, regardless of its origin, aimed at ending the bloodshed among the Libyan brothers,” said Belaid in his reply, in a press conference, to a question on the last Egyptian initiative for a ceasefire in Libya.
In this regard, the spokesman of the Presidency of the Republic reported an almost daily coordination and dialogue between Algerian Foreign minister and his counterparts of the region on the developments of the Libyan issue.
He affirmed that the communiqué of Foreign Affairs Ministry was very clear in this regard, adding that “we stand at the same distance from all parties , as we hope to act as a mediator that works to unite the belligerents without bias for any side or waiting for other things relating to the developments of the military situation on the ground.”

He added that Algeria “follows with interest the development of the events in this country,” an assertion that President of the Republic Abdelmadjid Tebboune underlined in a statement to the national and international media, assuring that Algeria “is working to save the children of the brotherly Libyan people from this tragedy marked by the involvement of foreign powers who only think about their own interests in this region,” while Algeria “think only about the interest of the Libyan people.”
