The Address | Benghazi – Libya
TUNIS – Tunisian Foreign Minister Khemaies Jhinaoui said on Thursday that Tunisia and its Arab partners reject the participation of militias and UN-designated terrorists in the war in Libya.
He made his remarks on the sidelines of a joint press conference in Carthage with his Egyptian and Algerian counterparts, who met to discuss the crisis in Libya.
He stressed that Tunisia, which was elected as a two-year member of the UN Security Council, will be keen on ensuring “the execution of all resolutions on Libya, including those related to a political settlement to the crisis and reaching a ceasefire.”
Moreover, Jhinaoui denied the existence of disputes between Tunisia, Egypt and Algeria on efforts to reach a political settlement to the conflict in Libya.
In a statement released overnight, the foreign ministers denounced “the continuous flow of weapons” and the “influx of foreign terrorist fighters” in Libya and ruled out the possibility of a military solution to the crisis.
They agreed to strengthen their cooperation in the fight against terrorism in the region.
