The newly elected Algerian Prime Minister Sabri Bugadoum said his country is going to propose new initiatives in the coming days to resolve the crisis in Libya via peaceful solutions.

On the sidelines of sending humanitarian aids convoy to Libya, the Algerian PM said his country doesn't accept any foreign forces on the ground in Libya, according to the Algerian News Agency.

He added that military solutions cannot resolve the crisis but dialogue among all parties with the help of neighboring countries, especially Algeria, can end the conflict.

Meanwhile, the spokesman for the Algerian Foreign Ministry has said that the agreement signed between Libya and Turkey is a sovereign issue between the two countries and is not of Algeria's concern.

The Algerian official indicated in a statement Tuesday that what is happening in Libya is dangerous, stressing his government's keenness to see a peaceful solution to the crisis.

"The illegal parties in Libya are the ones rejecting the peaceful path and are mobilizing the outlaws, including militias and mercenaries, providing them with flows of funds to fight proxy battles," the spokesman explained.

The Supreme Security Council of Algeria decided on December 26 to reactivate Algeria's role in international issues, especially in Libya, discussing at a meeting chaired by the new President, Abdelmadjid Tebboune, the situation in the region, especially on the border with Libya and Mali, according to the Algerian News Agency.

On the same day, Libya's Interior Minister Fathi Bashagha said there would be an alliance for the countries of Algeria, Tunisia, Turkey and Libya, promising that the alliance will launch massive cooperation in the few coming days.
