Paris – France has expressed on Monday its support for the signing of the inter-Libyan political agreement in Morocco.
The signing ceremony of the agreement to form a new national government will take place on Wednesday in Skhirat, in outskirts of Rabat.
“As does the international community, France supports the signing, without delay, by both parliaments, on December 16 in Skhirat, of the agreement between the Libyan parties under the aegis of the United Nations,” said the French Minister of Foreign Affairs Laurent Fabius in a statement to the press.
He also said that the urgency now is to form a national unity government, able to work immediately to secure the country with the support of the international community.
“We are in a decisive phase in which the return to stability is at hand,” he said, noting that anyone who tries to obstruct the agreement bears responsibility before Libyans and the international community.
An inter-Libyan political agreement to form a new national government will be signed on December 16 in the Moroccan city of Skhirat, Morocco’s Foreign Minister Salaheddine Mezouar said Sunday.
The minister said the signing of this agreement will enable the Maghreb country to “move to the reconstruction phase and establish the institutions that would promote stability, national cohesion and unity”.
In a statement to MAP, Mezouar underlined that Morocco has played a “very important role in facilitating and bringing Libyan parties together”.
He also recalled that the Kingdom is “one of the few countries that have always trusted the Libyans”, knowing that they are” able to settle their differences and reach a solution that preserves the unity of their country and their future”.
