The Tunisian Foreign Minister Khemaies Jhinaoui stressed on Friday his country’s efforts to find a solution to the crisis in Libya to end the bloodshed in the neighboring country.

“Tunisia is working on resolving the Libyan crisis politically,” Jhinaoui said in a statement broadcast Friday on the local private radio Shems FM.

“Tunisia has a moral duty to deal with any initiative that would end tensions in Libya,” he added.

Jhinaoui on Thursday discussed with Foreign Minister of Libya’s UN-backed government Mohamed Sayala the latest developments in Libya as well as bilateral relations.

During a press conference at the foreign ministry headquarters in Tunis, Jhinaoui reiterated that Tunisia will continue its efforts with international players to find a peaceful settlement to the Libyan crisis.
