The Tunisian Foreign Minister, Othman Jerandi, said his country's stance is in harmony with what Libyans want as regards to the mechanisms of finding way out the crisis, urging all parties to resort to dialogue.

The remarks came in a presser on Friday about the membership of Tunisia at the Security Council between 2020 and 2021, stressing that the Libyan situation is vital for the security of the region.

Jerandi added that Tunisia had been keen on taking up a leadership role at the Security Council as regards to issues related to Libya and helped devise resolutions on Libya, referring to the adoption of Berlin Conference conclusions and UNSMIL's mandate extension.

He indicated that Tunisia aims to bringing stability back to Libya to allow it to help establish peace and security in the Mediterranean as well as the Sahel region.

Tunisia hosted Libyan Political Dialogue Forum sessions in 2020, which led to the election of a new interim government in Libya, in addition to organizing meetings for the 5+5 Joint Military Commission for the unification of the military institution and withdrawal of foreign forces and mercenaries from the country.
