Tripoli govt abolishes entry visas for Algerians

Libya's Tripoli-based government on Tuesday abolished entry visas for Algerian nationals.

The Foreign Ministry said in a statement that the move was aimed at bolstering relations between the two neighbors.

In a similar move last week, the Tripoli-based government abolished entry visas for Moroccan nationals.

Libya has remained in a state of turmoil since a bloody uprising ended the decades-long rule of autocratic leader Muammar Gaddafi in late 2011.

Since then, sharp political divisions have yielded two rival seats of government, each of which has its own institutions.

Vying for legislative authority are the internationally-backed House of Representatives, which convenes in the eastern city of Tobruk, and the Islamist-led General National Congress, which – even though its mandate has ended – continues to convene in Tripoli.

The two assemblies support two different governments, respectively headquartered in the two cities. Both have substantial military capacities.
