Algerian president discusses the Libyan crisis with the Turkish foreign minister

UNITED STATES (OBSERVATORY NEWS) — Algerian President Abdel Majid Tabun received Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlüt Çayşo أوlu and discussed with him the latest developments of the situation in Libya after Ankara’s decision to send troops to this neighboring country to Algeria, according to the official news agency.

The Turkish minister arrived in Algeria on Monday evening, to discuss “the latest developments in Libya and ways to avoid the repercussions of the worsening of the current crisis, on the brotherly Libyan people, as well as on neighboring countries and the whole Mediterranean region …” according to Algeria.

Before he met the Algerian president, Chaouchoglu had talks with his counterpart, Sabri Bogadom.

Algeria called on Monday evening, the international community, and especially the UN Security Council, to “impose an immediate ceasefire” in Libya, according to a statement after a short visit to the head of the Libyan national reconciliation government recognized by the United Nations, Fayez El Sarraj.

The visits come a few days after the Turkish parliament approved a memorandum submitted by President Recep Tayyip Erdogan that would allow sending troops to Libya in accordance with the agreement reached between Ankara and Tripoli.

Since the overthrow of Muammar Gaddafi’s regime in 2011, Libya has lived in security chaos, and power is divided between the National Accord government in Tripoli and Field Marshal Khalifa Haftar’s forces in the east of the country.

Algeria, which shares more than 1,000 km of borders with Libya, expressed “its categorical rejection of any foreign interference in Libya” and appealed to “all components and various Libyan parties to prevail over the supreme interest and a quick return to the path of a comprehensive national dialogue to reach solutions capable of removing this brotherly and neighboring country From the crisis he is suffering from, “according to the presidential statement on Monday.

On Tuesday, European Union Foreign Minister Josip Borrell condemned “Turkey’s interference” in the Libyan conflict at the end of a meeting with the foreign ministers of France, Italy, Germany and Britain.
