Inter-Libyan peace dialogue resumes in Algeria
Inter-Libyan peace dialogue resumed on Wednesday in Algerian capital of Algiers in a new attempt to bridge the gap between antagonists in the north African nation which has been raged by a four-year long civil war.
Sponsored by the United Nations, this new round of talks has been kicked off by Algerian Minister for African and Maghreb Affairs, African Union and Arab League, Abdelkader Messahel, in the presence of Head of the UN Support Mission in Libya (UNISMIL), Bernardino Leone.
This two-day third round talks are discussing security arrangements as well as the latest developments of the situation in Libya, Messahel said.
Messahel reiterated "the unchanging position" of Algeria in terms of its determination to help the brotherly Libya to reach a unifying and inclusive dialogue away from any foreign interference, adding that the ultimate goal is establishing a national unity government.
Leon said in his opening remark that this meeting is the opportunity to improve previous project, explaining that the Libyans understood that the latest proposal agreement must be amended on the basis of a more political approach that should accept all involved.
The UN representative further noted that this third round of talks should focus "on improving the last project in terms of the required measures to take in a bid to build and reinforce the state institutions, including military and security that involve all Libyans."
"The deteriorating economic situation, the growing terrorist threat, and the political discord between the two governments in Libya urge all warrant parties to reach peace and reconciliation as soon as possible," Leon said.
He further specified that one of the main challenges of Libyans is to fight extremist groups affiliated to the Islamic State, which is gaining new areas across the nation and making it more difficult to restore peace and stability in the country.
