The Algerian Foreign Ministry said Saturday that Algeria will host the 14th Foreign Ministers Conference of Western Mediterranean 5+5 Dialogue on Sunday.

The conference will focus on "overall, shared and sustainable socio-economic development" in the western Mediterranean region, the statement said.

The conference comes amid security instability in the region, especially in Libya and Mali.

The 13th conference was held on Oct. 28, 2016 in France and discussed several regional and international issues, such as the situation in Libya, Syria and Iraq, anti-terrorism and climate challenges.

Established in 1990, the 5+5 Dialogue, consisting of Algeria, Morocco, Tunisia, Libya, Mauritania, Italy, France, Spain, Portugal and Malta, is the oldest bloc in the Mediterranean region.
