Algerian President Abdelmadjid Tebboune said on Monday that his country is in agreement with Ankara's approach that the Libyan solution lies in "holding elections and nothing else," confirming that they are in constant communication with Turkey on the Libyan issue.

Tebboune, who is visiting Turkey, held a joint press conference with his Turkish counterpart, Recep Tayyip Erdogan, following their meeting in the Turkish capital on Monday.

"There is no alternative to handing over the administration of the country to the Libyan people.. We are already in mutual consultations with Turkey on this issue," the Algerian President told the reporters at the Presidential Complex in Ankara.

He said that they both agreed that the Libyan people should have the last word in deciding their future and that elections must be run by the Libyans themselves.

Reporting on Tebboune's visit to Turkey, the Anadolu news agency wrote that Libya emerged as one of the major files coordinated between Turkey and Algeria in the context of efforts to find a political solution, in addition to coordinating positions on the developments in Palestine.
