Libyan Parliament Speaker Aguila Saleh has postponed his scheduled visit to Algeria until further notice without giving clear reasons, according to Libyan sources on Saturday.
Saleh was set to arrive in Algeria, within hours, for a two-day visit, to discuss developments of his country’s crisis and the endeavors for a political solution in Libya.
During his visit, Saleh was expected to meet with President Abdelmadjid Tebboune, Minister of Foreign Affairs Sabri Boukadoum and Speaker of the People’s National Assembly Slimane Chenine.
The meetings were arranged to tackle the latest developments in the Libyan scene, especially after the recent Egyptian move to help its tribes to protect their country’s territory.
On July 16, Egyptian President Abdel Fattah El Sisi received a high-level delegation of Sheikhs and Notables of Libyan tribes representing all the war-torn country’s spectra and regions.
In this regard, the tribes demanded Sisi to allow the Egyptian armed forces to intervene in Libya and protect the national security of Egypt and Libya.
Earlier, Algerian President Tebboune warned of turning Libya a new Somalia, according to his statements to France 24 TV channel on July 4th.
It was believed that Algeria will renew its proposal to hold a Libyan-Libyan dialogue forum under international and regional sponsorship to conclude a political solution to the crisis and reach a formation of transitional institutions and a unified government that shall prepare for organizing new elections and revive legitimacy for the state institutions, according to Algerian media reports published on Friday.
