Algerian Foreign Minister Sabri Boukadoum said that Turkey shares its position in favor of a political, non-military solution to the crisis in Libya.

Speaking at a joint press conference with his Turkish counterpart, Mevlut Cavusoglu, Boukadoum said on Wednesday that the two countries agree on the need to keep the region away from foreign agendas that do not serve the interests of their people.

Boukadoum added: "I felt the support and support of the Turkish side of the positions of Algeria in its regional neighborhood, and in particular the political solution in Libya." The Algerian minister also explained to his Turkish counterpart his country's position on the current situation with neighboring countries, especially in the Sahel and Mali. 

For his part, Cavusoglu praised Algeria's role in the region and its efforts "to bring peace to Libya," saying that "conflicts in Libya or in other countries, have negative repercussions on Algeria." He stressed that Turkey "does not believe in a military solution and is determined to coordinate bilaterally in order to reach a peaceful solution in Libya."
