Libya, Algeria, Tunisia Meet re Border Security

The premiers of Libya, Algeria and Tunisia are set to meet in the Libyan oasis of Ghadames tomorrow (Saturday) to discuss security along their common borders, reports Gulf News.

Prime Minister Ali Zeidan [Zidan] (pictured) said this week that the three countries will discuss “measures to secure their borders by fighting against the flow of arms and ammunition and other trafficking.”

On Monday, Zeidan hosted his Tunisian counterpart Hamadi Jebali for talks about security and the border crossing of Ras Jedir [Ras Al Jdeir], which had been closed to truck drivers for more than two weeks. The crossing reopened on Thursday.

In December, Libyan authorities declared the south of the country a military zone and closed the borders with Algeria, Niger, Chad and Sudan.
