Algerian President Abdelmadjid Tebboune and Italian Prime Minister Georgia Meloni addressed Libyan parties with an invitation to urgently hold general elections in the country.
Tebboune said, during a joint conference with Meloni at the presidential palace in Algiers on Monday, that they agreed to coordinate efforts to resolve regional crises, including the Libyan conflict, as the positions of the two countries converge.
In the context, the two parties stressed "the need to reach a consensual solution to the Libyan crisis, based on organizing elections, and supporting the path of national reconciliation within the framework of the comprehensive dialogue led by the United Nations, while supporting the interests of the Libyan state."
The Italian Prime Minister indicated that she had discussed with President Tebboune the crisis in Libya and Tunisia and the growing destabilization in the Mali region and the Sahel. Meloni, who arrived in Algeria on Sunday for a two-day visit, said it was the first bilateral mission in North Africa that the Italian government wanted to undertake.
