Algiers, May 30: In a bid to reach sustainable peace, Libya's neighbouring countries here Thursday reaffirmed their full support for inclusive dialogue between the disputing parties.

"The foreign ministers of Libya's neighbouring countries reaffirm their support for all efforts and initiatives aiming at launching a Libyan national dialogue, safeguarding the transitional justice, and consolidating the foundations of the state's institutions and the democratic process in a peaceful, stable and serene environment," Xinhua quoted a statement as saying.

The statement was issued at the end of a consultation meeting of Foreign Ministers of Algeria, Egypt, Sudan, and Tunisia, held May 27-28 in Algiers.

The neighbours stressed on the need to combine their efforts with the Arab League and the African Union to help Libya, and urged to conduct a common approach and a road-map reflecting Libyan aspirations and priorities.

While announcing their full solidarity with Libyan people, the participants also expressed their "deep concern" about the latest developments in Libya. They stressed the need to preserve the sovereignty, independence and territorial integrity of Libya by rejecting "any foreign interference in its domestic affairs."

Participants called on all parties and Libyan forces to "put an end to violence ahead of upholding inclusive dialogue to meet the legitimate claims and aspirations of the Libyan people for stability, security, peace and development".

Libya has been ridden by violence and political crisis since 2011, after the outbreak of the Libyan revolt against the regime of late Muammar Gaddafi.
