For the definitive return of peace and social security, Libya could count on Algeria’s support. Algerian President Abdelmadjid Tebboune said on Sunday that his country was ready to provide assistance and support to Libyans during the next stage of political settlement and construction. He also recalled that he has constantly called for the evacuation of mercenaries and the withdrawal of foreign forces from Libya, not without skipping the Moroccan neighbour.
Libya, which recently set up a government of national unity in order to get out of the crisis in which this North African country has been immersed for 10 years, could count on Algeria’s support. « Algeria is ready to provide the necessary assistance to the Republic of Libya if it requests it for the organisation of elections at the end of the year, under the aegis of the United Nations, » said President Abdelmadjid Tebboune, during the periodic interview with the Algerian media.
« Thanks to Algeria’s return to the Libyan scene after ten years of absence, this neighbouring country has seen positive developments and is now moving towards the path it has always advocated, namely the imperative of resolving the crisis within a « Libyan-Libyan » framework, the evacuation of mercenaries and foreign forces and the organization of elections, » said the Algerian head of state, pointing the finger at Erdogan’s Turkey and Putin’s Russia, which are very involved in the Libyan crisis.
In his speech, Abdelmadjid Tebboune stressed that everything Algeria wished for this brotherly country has been achieved, including the return to calm and the organisation of elections. President Tebboune emphasised the outstretched hand of Algeria « which refrains from harming others and which, in no case, seeks to interfere with these deadlines. « The latest political and security developments in Libya are very positive and honour the Libyans. And Algeria is ready to accompany the Libyan people in all areas, economic and social as well as medical and educational, » said the Algerian President.
However, President Abdelmadjid Tebboune added that « Algeria considers the countries with which it shares borders, such as Niger and Mali, as brotherly countries and anything that is harmful to them is harmful to us too », royally snubbing its closest neighbour, with whom it shares the northern part of Africa. Niger and Mali are located in West Africa.
