Algeria, Tunisia stress support for the political process in Libya

Algeria and Tunisia on Sunday stressed their support for the political process in the war-torn Libya and rejecting any military intervention to resolve the crisis in the countries of North Africa.
“We urge the Libyan rivals to meet to form a government of national reconciliation based in Tripoli to address key issues, including the fight against terrorism,” visiting minister Tunisia Foreign Khemaies Jhinaoui told reporters after meeting with his counterpart Algerian Ramtane Lamamra.
In addition, the diplomacy of Algeria said that his country “does not believe that military action and put more weapons to Libya lead to achieve peace there.”
“We are excited that the neighbors of Libya to be important part of the solution rather than part of the problem,” he said.
Some Western countries have recently called for launching a military intervention in Libya to oust militants from the Islamic State.
Libya has reached a security vacuum with the increased domination of extremists since the fall and death of Muammar Gaddafi in 2011.
The country has been plagued by rising violence and political division.
In late 2015, Libyan rivals reached a peace agreement after talks sponsored by the UN held in the Moroccan resort of Skhirat.
