All parties to the conflict in Libya are interested in the mediation of Algeria as the only state which remained neutral in the inter-Libyan conflict, said at a press conference the Minister for foreign Affairs of Algeria Sabri Boukadoum.
“All sides in Libya need the mediation of Algeria. Since we are the only state that did not send arms and mercenaries to Libya. We sent only a message of hope in the name of political solution,” said Boukadoum.
Algerian Minister warned against foreign interference in the Libyan conflict, because of which the situation is likely to repeat the Syrian scenario. “We have not observed a large number of Libyans in clashes…, external intervention will turn Libya not only in a new Syria, but also Somalia,” said Boukadoum.
