NIAMEY – Minister of Maghreb Affairs, African Union and Arab League Abdelkader Messahel said Wednesday that Algeria is fully prepared to “share with the Libyan brothers its experience regarding the national reconciliation policy.”
In a speech during the 9th meeting of Libya neighboring countries in Niamey, Messahel stressed that “Algeria has spared no effort to alleviate the sufferings of our brothers in Libya, through constant humanitarian aid intended in particular to the neighboring populations. It (Algeria) is fully prepared to share with the Libyans, at their request, its experience of national reconciliation and to put at their disposal all its tools and mechanisms.”
“We need to pursue our approach, started 2012, so to broaden the national inter-Libyan dialogue and consultation with all the Libyan parties, notably those which have real influence in the political, economic, social and security life, and to reach a wide consensus among all the players and trends of the Libyan society,” added Messahel.
The Minister said that “there is no other alternative to the political solution founded on inter-Libyan inclusive dialogue, with the exception of the UN- listed terrorist groups,” underlining the need for the UN Organization to accompany this dialogue so to help Libya end this crisis it is facing since 2011.
Messahel is participating with the foreign ministers of Libyan neighboring countries and delegates of continental and UN instances in the 9th meeting of Libyan neighboring countries in Niger’s Niamey.
