Foreign ministers from Algeria, Tunisia, and Egypt are holding a tripartite ministerial meeting on Libya. The meeting is geared at looking at the development and progress made by conflict-ridden Libya and a way forward for the rebuilding of the north African nation.
Algerian Foreign Minister Abdelkader Messahel, his Egyptian counterpart Sameh Shoukry and Tunisian counterpart Khemaies Jhinaoui are expected to discuss the holding of a referendum on a new constitution in Libya, and the parliamentary and presidential elections that the United Nations intended to hold before the end of this year.
The meeting is also expected to discuss ways to strengthen the efforts to accelerate the peace and reconciliation process between Libyan disputing parties.
These meetings are part of the periodic consultation among the three countries to help neighboring Libya end its civil war that has lasted for more than seven years, as armed clashes continue in the east and the south of the country.
