Spokesman for Algeria Foreign Ministry Amar Belani said there are no other options than a political solution to the crisis in the strife-torn Libya, adding that the military campaign there should come to an end.

Belani has been quoted by local Arabic speaking daily Echorouk, on Wednesday issue, as saying that all sides agree that there is now no alternative except a political solution to the crisis in Libya, and that the military campaign has come to an end, a conclusion agreed by senior military chiefs among member countries of the contact group on Libya.

He added that since the very beginning of the crisis in Libya, Algeria has been a strong party in the efforts aiming at restoring peace there, notably through contributing efficiently in drawing up of the AU peace roadmap which is still valid.

The Foreign Ministry's spokesman further stressed on the commitment of Algeria in working on to reach a political solution and responding to aspirations of the Libyan people, and preserving the unity of this brotherly and neighboring country.

Algeria on Saturday "categorically denied the allegations" related to the existence of Libya-bound weapons cargo transiting by the Djen Djen Port (Jijel, 360 km east of Algiers).
