Algeria said it will reopen its embassy in Tripoli in the coming days after seven years of closure over security threats.

The announcement came Wednesday after a visit for the Algerian Foreign Minister, Sabri Boukadoum, to Tripoli, where he carried out a visit to check on the conditions of the embassy headquarters ahead of reopening in the few coming days.

Boukadoum reiterated his country's support for the agreement on Libya elections on December 24, 2021, saying they are ready to play a bigger role in the dialogue tracks to resolve the Libyan crisis.

Boukadoum's remarks came in a visit he paid to Tripoli Wednesday, when he met the Head of the Presidential Council, Fayez Al-Sarraj, Head of High Council of State, Khalid Al-Mishri, Speaker of Tripoli-based House of Representatives, Hamouda Sayala, and Foreign Minister, Mohammed Sayala, along with other officials.

The meetings reviewed the latest developments in Libya and the keenness of Algeria on playing a bigger role in leading Libya into peace and stability through transparent elections on December 24, 2021.
