In an address at the 7th Tokyo International Conference on African Development (TICAD7), focusing on "security and stability," Bedoui said Algeria "has worked with determination to preserver peace in Africa, making of this commitment a key component of its foreign policy."
"Algeria, which has encouraged all peace initiatives in Africa, also contributes to the efforts aimed at restoring stability in its direct neighborhood by supporting solutions based on dialogue and national reconciliation," the Prime minister said.
The approach stems from "Algeria's constant desire to put an end to conflicts and crises in our region and from our conviction that the best way to resolve those conflicts and crises is to favor political solutions through an inclusive dialogue among the concerned parties, placing the higher interests of their countries above any other considerations, thus preserving their sovereignty and stability as well as the integrity of their territories."
Bedoui said this is the "only approach for the parties to the conflict to restore security and stability and launch the reconstruction process."
"Based on this belief, Algeria has backed Mali's efforts to implement the peace and reconciliation agreement, and continues to do it by chairing the committee on the agreement's follow-up."
Algeria also "supports peace in Libya and intensive efforts made to bring closer the positions of the Libyan brothers, in order to reach a lasting political solution to the crisis shaking the country, through an inclusive dialogue and national reconciliation in respect of Libya's territorial integrity, unity, sovereignty and the cohesion of its people," the prime minister said.
