TUNIS, June 14 (Xinhua) -- Tunisian Minister of Foreign Affairs Khemaies Jhinaoui on Friday discussed with Ghassan Salame, visiting UN special envoy to Libya, the latest developments in the war-torn country.

The meeting dealt with efforts to reach an immediate cease-fire and resumption of a political process in Libya.

Jhinaoui briefed Salame on the outcome of a meeting of the Tunisian, Algerian and Egyptian foreign ministers which was held in Tunis on Wednesday to discuss the Libyan issue.

"The statement issued at the end of the meeting reflected the three countries' concern over the continued clashes in Libya and their willingness ... to put an end to the fighting and to revive the political process," Jhinaoui was quoted as saying in a press release by the Tunisian Foreign Ministry.

He hailed the efforts of the UN special envoy to Libya, noting they should lead to great progress toward national reconciliation in Libya.

Meanwhile, Salame said he was firmly convinced that the three main neighbors of Libya, namely Tunisia, Algeria and Egypt, have no other interest than to see stability restored in Libya.
