Algerian interim president ‘concerned’ about Libya’s conflict

Algerian Interim President Abdelkader Bensalah expressed concern over the ongoing violence in Libya during a Friday meeting with head of the Government of National Accord (GNA) Faiez al-Sarraj.

He said his country is following up the escalations, and hopes all parties return to th negotiation table soon.

Sarraj arrived in Algeria Thursday, where he met with Bensalah along with other Algerian officials.

Bensalah told Sarraj that Algeria is coordinating with its international partners to achieve peace and stability in Libya.

Sarraj has been visiting several countries, especially European countries, seeking international support against the offensive launched by Libyan National Army (LNA) commander Khalifa Haftar on April 4, which terminated all of the United Nations plans to organize an international conference attended by rival Libyan factions in Ghadames city on April 14.

A rising number of dead and injured civilians has reached 510 people by May 19 complicates the situation, as both the GNA and the LNA refuse all calls for ceasefires.
