Algeria, Libya Boost Security Cooperation

The Algerian Prime Minister, Abdelmalek Sellal, announced recently, following his meeting with his Tunisian counterpart, that he would visit Libya at the end of December to discuss security co-ordination with Libyan officials, adding:

It’s necessary to control the security situation in the region ... Without stability, it’s not possible to have any kind of development.”

Sellal’s expected visit to Libya will come at a time when Algerian authorities are increasingly worried that heavy weapons may fall in the hands of terrorist groups that are still active in the region, concerns heightened bythe attack on the In Amenas gas facility, which was carried out by a group that entered Algeria from Libya.
