An impromptu mini summit on the sidelines of the forum of gas exporting countries took place in Algiers on Sunday at the initiative of Algerian President Abdelmadjid Tebboune, bringing together the President of Tunisia, Kais Saied, and the President of the Libyan Presidential Council, Mohamed Younes El- Memphis.

The participants in the meeting “examined the situation in the Maghreb region and underlined the need to unify and intensify efforts to address economic and security challenges, serving the interests of the peoples of the three countries”, indicates the Algerian presidency in a press release.

At the end of the talks it was decided “to hold a North African tripartite meeting every three months, the first in Tunisia after the holy month of Ramadan”, specifies the same source.

Moroccan sources underline that Morocco, which is also geographically part of the Maghreb area, was not invited.

The tripartite meeting in Algiers materializes an old dream of Tunisian Rached Ghannouchi, leader of the Islamist party Ennahda, who has been detained in his country for several months. In February 2021 he expressed his opinion in favor of a Maghreb composed exclusively of Algeria, Tunisia and Libya. “This nucleus must be the starting point for relaunching the dream of the Arab Maghreb Union, which will contribute to solving Tunisia’s problems in a regional framework,” he underlined in statements to the press.
