Libyan Foreign Minister Abdelaati Obeidi has been meeting some foreign representatives in Djerba, Tunisia, in a bid to find solutions to the Libyan crisis, Tunisia's state-run press agency TAP reported Sunday.

The report did not specify whom Obeidi had met.

It said Libyan Health Minister Ahmed Hijazi and Social Affairs Minister Ibrahim Cherif arrived in Djerba Sunday afternoon to join Obeidi.

Earlier TAP reports said Obeidi entered Tunisia through land borders from Libya Wednesday on a mission to resolve the Libyan crisis through diplomatic efforts.

Meanwhile, Algeria's official news agency APS said Algerian Foreign Minister Mourad Medelci met with Libyan government envoy Slimane Chahoumi in Algiers on Sunday.

Chahoumi, who arrived in Algeria via Tunisia, is also scheduled to visit Mauritania.

Libya has been embroiled in a four-month war between government forces and rebels, with the latter supported by NATO air power, which was aimed at imposing a no-fly zone over Libya.
