The Algerian Foreign Minister, Sabri Boukadoum, reaffirmed the importance of Libya's stability and security in the region, saying his country always backed this stance toward the neighboring Libya.

Boukadoum's remarks came on Twitter Tuesday after he had wrapped up his visit to Tripoli, where he arrived on Monday with a delegation that included the Algerian Interior Minister Kamal Beldjoud.

Boukadoum said the work visit to Libya was an opportunity to communicate with top officials of the new executive authority to boost bilateral relations and reiterate Algeria's support for the unification efforts in the country ahead of the upcoming elections, adding that Algeria's goal has always been Libya's security and stability.

Boukadoum and the Algerian delegation met with the Presidential Council’s Head Mohammed Menfi and his two deputies, the Prime Minister Abdul-Hamid Dbeibah and the Head of the High Council of State Khalid Al-Mishri on his visit to Tripoli.
