The Algerian presence in the Libyan dossier has become more prominent than during the last period in which Algeria was witnessing popular uprisings, which made them distant from the issues and crises of neighboring countries.
After the statements of the Minister of the Interior, Fathi Pashaga, that there is a quartet alliance, Libya, Turkey, Tunisia, Algeria, Algeria revealed its vision of the crisis in Libya, by presenting an initiative that includes all Libyan parties to the dialogue table, which reflects its rejection of military solutions.
Before Algeria revealed its vision of the crisis in Libya, Interior Minister Fathi Pashaga stressed that Libya has an alliance with Tunisia, Algeria and Turkey that serves the peoples of these countries and supports the stability of the North African region, because it is targeted, stressing that the coalition is beneficial to these countries and does not constitute a threat to other countries.
In a press statement, Pashaga added that the fall of Tripoli, which is being targeted by Khalifa Hifter with a military operation supported by the UAE, Saudi Arabia and Egypt, will reflect negatively on the neighboring countries.
The Algeria Initiative
After Bashaga’s talk about the upcoming alliance between Libya, Algeria, Turkey and Tunisia, Algerian Foreign Minister Sabri Boqadoum announced on Thursday that his country will undertake dialogue initiatives between the Libyan parties, provided that these dialogue initiatives take place inside Algeria.
Boqadoum’s statements were followed by calls for different parties and popular forces in Algeria, regarding the successive developments in Libya, calling for exploiting Algeria’s regional weight to prevent manipulation of the region, and a plan to preserve the major balances of the region by securing Libya and the coast.
Chaucoglu in Algeria
At a time when Algeria welcomed President of the Presidential Council, Faize Asarraj, Interior Minister Fethi Pashaaga and Foreign Minister Mohamed Sayyala, the Turkish Foreign Ministry announced a two-day visit of its Minister, Chaouchoglu.
The ministry affirmed, through its website, that the meetings that Chaucoglu intends to hold in Algeria would deal with “bilateral relations between the two countries in all its aspects and exchange views on regional and international issues.
Merkel invites Algeria
Hours after the Algerian president met with the delegation of the Al-Wefaq government and Turkish Foreign Minister Chaucoglu, Germany sent an official invitation to Algeria to participate in the Berlin conference.
Algeria’s invitation came after many requests from the Libyan government, North African countries, and Turkey that the neighboring countries of Libya should participate in the dialogue in order to reach a political solution that guarantees the protection of Libya and the independence of its lands.
