The Algerian ambassador to Qatar, Mustafa Boutoura, said on Tuesday, that his country's efforts to settle the Libyan crisis have Qatari support, following the visit of Emir Tamim bin Hamad Al Thani, to Algeria.

Boutoura affirmed the compatibility of the visions between the two countries on many Arab and international issues, including the solution to the current crisis in Libya, considering that “the untiring efforts made by Algeria in several bilateral or multilateral directions under the guidance of President Abdel Majid Tebboune, have clear country support”, according to his speech a press conference in Doha.

The Emir of Qatar started last Sunday an Arab tour that included Jordan and Tunisia, he then arrived in Algeria on Tuesday as the last stop of the tour. According to a statement issued by the Algerian presidency, the talks between the two sides dealt with "an exchange of views on issues of common concern."

Tebboune previously offered to host a dialogue bringing together the Libyan parties to resolve the crisis, during his participation in the Berlin conference on Libya last January, and he dispatched his Foreign Minister Sabri Boukadoum to Benghazi and Tripoli, in an attempt to play the mediation role.

During talks with the Emir of Qatar, Tunisian President Kais Saied affirmed the possibility of inviting a number of Libyan tribes to hold a second expanded meeting in Tunisia, which would be representative of all tribes to put an end to "fighting, wars and divisions."

Saied stressed the need to find a "Libyan-Libyan" solution, noting that Tunisia is one of the countries most affected by what is happening in Libya.
