Conclusions of the fruitful Libyan Dialogue held in Bouznika, Morocco

The Libyan Dialogue, held since the 6th of September, in Bouznika (Morocco) has concluded by the publication of a joint statement highlighting that the Libyan High Council of State and the Tobruk Parliament have reached a comprehensive agreement and that both parties will pursue dialogue during the last week of this month in order to implement it.

At the conclusion of this Libyan Dialogue in Bouznika, the Minister of Foreign Affairs, African Cooperation and Moroccan Expatriates, Mr. Nasser Bourita, stressed that the compromises made by the two delegations have confirmed the Kingdom's belief that Libyans are capable of finding solutions to their problems without any influence as they are able to determine the interest of Libya and the way to serve it.

The Minister noted equally that the Kingdom has always been convinced - which was also confirmed during the Bouznika meetings - that the High Council of State and the House of Representatives are the cornerstone for any progress towards finding solutions to issues concerning the Libyan crisis.

The Libyan Delegations, extending their thankfulness to His Majesty Mohammed VI, King of Morocco for the support provided to overcome this internal crisis, called on the International Community, notably the United Nations, to support Morocco’s efforts to provide the right conditions to achieve a consensual political solution in Libya.

The Representative of both sides underlined in the joint statement that this Bouznika’s Libyan Dialogue which took place in a “friendly and fraternal atmosphere marked by understanding and consensus", has been held taking into consideration the current extremely dangerous situation in Libya, at different levels, threatening the country’s security, territorial integrity and sovereignty, following foreign interventions that revive wars and regional and ideological rivalries. They expressed, equally, their awareness of the dangerous repercussions arising from the political and institutional division which has caused the Libyan Citizens’ loss of confidence in the role of the legislative, executive and control institutions due to the poor living conditions at all levels.

Both parties also stressed that these meetings take place in application of Article 15 of the Libyan political agreement reached in Skhirat and in conformity of the conclusions of the Berlin conference supporting the political solution as well as on the basis of the relevant Security Council’s Resolutions.

It is worth recalling that the United Nations, the European Union, the Arab League, the African Union as well as many countries such as France, Italy, Turkey, Egypt, Jordan and others praised the Moroccan initiative aiming primarily at encouraging the Libyan parties to find an internal solution to this political conflict.
