Libyan Dialogue in Morocco ends up with comprehensive agreement

The delegations of the Libyan High Council of State and the Tobruk Parliament announced on Thursday in Bouznika, at the end of their meetings as part of the Libyan dialogue, that they reached a comprehensive agreement on the transparent and objective criteria and mechanisms to fill the positions of Sovereignty.

The two parties to the dialogue called on the UN and the international community to support Morocco’s efforts to create the right conditions and appropriate climate conducive to achieve a comprehensive political solution in Libya.

They reiterated in this vein their thanks and gratitude to Morocco and to King Mohammed VI for their support and assistance to overcome the Libyan crisis and achieve the Libyan people’s aspirations to build a civilian and democratic State where peace, security and stability would prevail.

The two sides also affirmed that their meetings, which took place in “a friendly and fraternal atmosphere marked by understanding and consensus”, were held as a result of their awareness of the current situation in the country, at different levels, an extremely dangerous situation threatening the security, territorial integrity and sovereignty of the State. They insisted that this situation was created by negative foreign interventions that revive wars, ideological alignments, and regional instability.

Both parties also stressed that these meetings take place in application of Article 15 of the Libyan political agreement reached in Skhirat, Morocco, and in confirmation of the conclusions of the Berlin conference, which both support a political solution. The dialogue was also held in line with the relevant Security Council resolutions, and was dictated by the two sides’ awareness of the dangerous repercussions arising from the prevailing political and institutional division in the country. This division has created poor living conditions for the people of Libya and weakened Libyans’ confidence in the country’s legislative, executive, and monitoring institutions.

The High Council of State and the Parliament of Tobruk met in Morocco from Sept. 6 to 10, with the aim of overcoming their differences, sustaining the ceasefire announced on Aug.20 and putting an end to institutional divisions.
