ALGERIA URGES LIBYAN WARRING PARTIES STOP ARMED CONFRONTATIONS

ALGIERS, Algeria urged Libyan disputing parties to put an end to armed confrontations, noting that such confrontations undermine any political settlement in Libya.

"Algeria deeply concerns over recent developments in Libya, particularly the escalation of violence in Tripoli and its dire repercussions on its population," Algeria said in a statement.

Algeria called upon Libyan warrant parties "to defend Libya's highest interests away from any external interference."

"Algeria spares no effort as it has always done, to accompany its brotherly and neighboring country on the path of comprehensive dialogue and national reconciliation," the statement added.

In fact, Algeria is worried that instability in Libya would impact homeland security of Algeria in the long term.

The Libyan political rivals signed a UN-sponsored peace agreement in the Moroccan city of Skhirat on Dec 17, 2015, in an attempt to put an end to more than six years of civil war.

A national unity government and a cabinet led by Prime Minister Fayez al-Seraj were established, whose top mission is to unite Libya's warring parties.
