Algeria pres. vows unyielding support for Africa peace efforts

ALGIERS Algerian President Abdelmadjid Tebboune said Sunday that his country would resolutely carry on backing efforts to maintain peace and security in Africa.

In a keynote speech during an African Union (AU) summit, held in the Ethiopian capital, Addis Ababa, he echoed his country’s relentless commitment to resolving the Libyan conflict by means of spurring dialogue between warring sides.

The Algerian president cautioned that the tragic situation in Libya, with which Algeria shares long frontiers and the same destiny, still poses much concern to his country.

Tebboun underlined that his country vehemently throws much weight behind ongoing good offices aiming at putting an end to infighting in war torn Libya and creating a congenial atmosphere for inter Libya dialogue.

“It is the sole means to find a way out of the (Libyan) crisis,” the Algerian said.

The 33rd summit of the African Union (AU) kicked off in Addis Ababa earlier on Sunday, with heads of state coming in from all over Africa to discuss this year’s main topic: Silencing the Guns.

Ending the conflict in Libya is high on the agenda of the African summit, as the United Nations (UN) is calling on the AU to play a greater role in settling the Libyan crisis. (Pick up previous) mr.mt
