Al-Sanky Commends Tunisia’s Support to Libya

Libyan Interior Minister Omar Al-Sanky expressed at his meeting with Foreign Minister Mongi Hamdi Tuesday in Tunis his country’s gratitude to Tunisia for its support to the Libyan people and its commitment to Libya’s security and stability.

The meeting reviewed the latest developments of the situation in Libya at the political and security levels.

Hamdi reasserted Tunisia’s constant position regarding the events in Libya and its willingness to keep the same distance from all protagonists, saying that dialogue and consensus between political stakeholders are the only solution to the Libyan crisis and to turn the page.

Tunisia gladly welcomes the Libyan brothers. Nevertheless, they should refrain from organising meetings on its territory without official authorisation, to avoid any possible impact on Tunisia’s security and stability and not to involve it in Libya’s internal affairs, said Mongi Hamdi.

The talk also focused on the fate of Tunisian hostages in Libya, journalists Sofiene Chourabi and Nadhir Gtari and the security guard of Tunisia’s embassy in Tripoli.

The Libyan minister said, for his part, that he will deal with this situation in person, hoping that hostages will be set free as soon as possible.

The meeting was attended by Libya’s ambassador in Tunis Mohamed Al-Maaloul.
