Algeria renews call for settlement of Libyan file based on consensual solution


ALGIERS- Algeria renewed its call to find a settlement to the Libyan crisis based on a consensual solution, and to achieve comprehensive national reconciliation that leads to the holding of elections to enable the Libyan people to choose their representatives at the level of political institutions.

These statements were made by the Algerian ambassador to Libya, Slimane Chenine, at a ceremony held Monday at his country’s embassy in Tripoli on the occasion of the 68th anniversary of the outbreak of the Algerian revolution in the presence of the head of the Government of National Unity of Libya, ministers, and members of the House of Representatives and High Council of State.

The ambassador referred to Algeria’s position toward the Libyan crisis, which is based on rejecting foreign interference in internal affairs, and supporting the efforts of the UN envoy to Libya, while calling for a settlement to this crisis within the framework of a Libyan-Libyan consensual solution.

He also hailed the support provided by the Libyan people to their Algerian brothers and sisters during the struggle for liberation and independence in the revolution time, while Prime Minister Dbeibah underscored Algeria’s position in support of the Libyan people and the sovereignty as well as the unity of Libya at the current period.

Algeria has reiterated its recognition and support, time and time again, for the Government of National Unity as the legitimate government in Libya, saying it refuses to recognize Fathi Bashagha’s government that is designated by the House of Representatives.

On another level, the Algerian ambassador to Libya welcomed the great return of Algerian diplomacy under the leadership of the President of the Republic, Mr. Abdelmadjid Tebboune at the regional and international levels, in particular through the holding of the 31st Arab Summit, on November 1 and 2 in addition to the success of the reconciliation between the Palestinian factions, recalling that Algeria also aspires to obtain membership in the Security Council for the period 2024/2025 to pursue its efforts in the service of peace and security worldwide.

The head of the Government of National Unity of Libya, Mr. Abdelhamid Dbeibah recalled, in his speech, the depth and solidity of Algerian-Libyan relations based on a great heritage of solidarity and fraternity between the Algerian and Libyan peoples, particularly during the period of struggle against colonialism, welcoming Algeria’s position in favor of the Libyan people and the sovereignty and unity of Libya.
