The Minister of Foreign Affairs and the National Community Abroad, Ramtane Lamamra, reiterated Algeria’s readiness to continue its efforts to support Libyans and enable them to benefit from the Algerian experience in the field of national reconciliation.
In a speech he delivered during his participation in the consultative ministerial meeting between the troika of the presidency of the Arab summit / Algeria – Tunisia – Saudi Arabia /, with members of the Security Council to discuss crises in the Arab region, Ramtane Lamamra said, “My country has been keen to engage in many regional and international endeavors aimed at addressing The root causes of conflicts and disputes, and bringing stability to its regional and international circles, by upholding the concepts of dialogue, communication and peaceful solutions to internal issues and conflicts.”
Lamamra added, “This firm conviction was embodied in Libya by supporting the course of the national dialogue between the Libyan brothers under the auspices of the United Nations, and its initiative to establish, with its brothers, the Libyan Neighboring Countries Mechanism, which held its last meeting recently in Algeria, and which aims to achieve the desired stability in Libya and push the wheel of peace, through the organization of presidential and legislative elections, in accordance with the road map emanating from the process of the Libyan political dialogue.”
The Minister affirmed that Algeria continues to defend the just causes of the peoples who struggle and fight to regain their basic rights and exercise their right to self-determination, especially the Palestinian cause, noting that “Algeria has been calling since the beginning of these crises to the necessity of preferring effective consensual political solutions, emphasizing the priority of dialogue and reconciliation and upholding the will of peoples.
In the same context, he stressed that Algeria “does not see a way to achieve security and peace in our region, except through the Palestinian people’s realization of their legitimate rights to establish their independent state with East Jerusalem as its capital.”
In the face of these practices and the deadlock in the horizon, the head of the Algerian diplomacy called on the international community, especially the Security Council, to “assume its historical and legal responsibilities, to force Israel to submit to international legitimacy, and end its occupation of Palestinian lands.”
