Tunisia’s President says his country “has no agenda in Libya”

The Address | Benghazi – Libya

TUNIS – Tunisia has no agenda in Libya, except the return of understanding, security and stability, Tunisian President Beji Caid Essebsi said on Monday.

Tunisia is standing at equal distance from all parties, he said, adding that his country’s interest lies on Libya’s return to “its natural place and preserves its unity”.

Essebsi expressed the deep concern of Tunisia for the situation in Libya, calling on Libyans to “stop fighting and resume dialogue.”

He urged Libyans to “uphold the supreme interest of their country and place it above all other considerations”.

Clashes erupted in Tripoli between the Libyan National Army (LNA) and militias of the Tripoli-based Government of National Accord (GNA) after LNA launched a military operation in the capital on April 4. LNA’s operation aims to eliminate militias and terrorist groups that dominated the capital since 2011.
