The foreign ministers of Algeria, Tunisia and Egypt have held a tripartite meeting on Monday in Algeria, to discuss the situation in Libya and find a political solution for the crisis in order to tackle later security issues, especially combating ISIS.

The meeting, which will end today, will be followed by a communique that presents the results of the three neighboring countries’ efforts to resolve the Libyan crisis.

According to Spokesperson for Algeria’s foreign Ministry Abdelaziz Benali Cherif, the tripartite ministerial meeting of Abdelkader Messahel, Khemaies Jhinaoui and Sameh Shoukry is “part of continuous consultations between Algeria, Tunisia and Egypt over the crisis hitting Libya since 2011, as foreign ministers of these three nations are due to assess the political and security developments there.”

“The meeting aims to reinforce the political process in Libya……on the path towards sustainable peace and national reconciliation,” the spokesperson said.

“It will also be an opportunity to examine all the factors that can contribute to promote a coordinated approach to accompany the Libyan people in their quest for a political solution to the crisis facing that brother and neighbor.”

The tripartite meeting follows those held in Algeria on May 8 and in Tunisia on February 19-20.
