FM REITERATES TUNISIA’S COMMITMENT TO PEACEFUL SETTLEMENT OF CRISIS IN LIBYA

TUNIS, Aug. 27- Minister of Foreign Affairs Mongi Hamdi has reiterated Tunisia’s commitment to a peaceful settlement of the crisis in Libya and its opposition to any foreign intervention in this country.

Hamdi, who was speaking at the fourth Ministerial Meeting for the Neighbouring Countries of Libya held in Cairo, deemed necessary to use all peaceful avenues, which, he said, are the best means to end the spiral of violence in this country and place the interest of Libya above narrow ideological and political considerations.

The FM said he was in favour of any initiative prompting the launch of a national dialogue in Libya.

The meeting was attended by the foreign ministers of Egypt, Algeria, Libya and Sudan and Chad, while Niger was represented by its ambassador in Cairo.

Secretary-General of the Arab League and the special envoys of the Arab League and the African Union were also present.

The fourth Ministerial meeting for the Neighbouring Countries of Libya is part of following up the meeting of Libya’s neighbouring countries held from last July 13 to 14 in Hammamet.

On the sidelines of his participation in the meeting, the minister of foreign affairs had talks with his Egyptian, Sudanese and Chadian counterparts as well as with the Secretary-General of the Arab League and the special envoys of the Arab League and the African Union.
