The UN and Algeria discuss dangers facing violence that plagued Libya

Special Representative and Head of the United Nations Support Mission in Libya Martin Kobler discussed on Monday with Algerian officials in Algiers progress of the political process and security situation in Libya in the grip of violence.
Following his meeting with the Algerian Minister for Maghreb Affairs, the African Union and the Arab League, Abdelkader Messahel, the UN official told reporters that “Libya has a large and vulnerable border that could lead the emergence of illegal security situation due to political and military vacancy in the country. “
Kobler warned that Libya is facing growing threats of the Islamic State (IS) militant group, which is gaining ground amid deteriorating humanitarian and financial situations.
Kobler noted that his talks with Mr. Messahel included the political process and the means to move the newly set up government which was announced in mid-January in Tunis, capital of Tunisia.
For his part, the Algerian minister said that his country had always been a supporter for the political process in Libya, while the government of national unity must be inclusive, adding that a strong government could prevent the spread of terrorism.
