Rabat – Morocco’s Minister of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation Nasser Bourita represented Morocco in an international summit on the Libyan crisis on Tuesday in Paris.
The United Nations-sponsored international conference convened Libya’s Chief of Staff Marshall Khalifa Haftar, Speaker of the Libyan House of Representatives in Tobruk Aguila Saleh, Chairman of the Presidential Council of Libya Fayez al-Sarraj, and President of Libya High Council Khaled Mechri.
Representatives of twenty countries, regional and Western powers, including French President Emmanuel Macron, were also in attendance.
The Libyan officials said, “We pledge to work constructively with the United Nations to hold credible and peaceful elections on December 10 and to respect the results of the elections.”
The leaders also expressed their commitment to ensuring funds and “strong security arrangements” for the voting.
The leaders agreed to work on “phasing out parallel government” and on “the unifying of the Libyan Central Bank and other institutions,” Maghreb Arab Press (MAP) reported.
The host of the conference, Macron, commended the agreement, saying, “We now have clear commitments for the country, an approved calendar for parliamentary and presidential elections,” reported The Guardian.
The four leaders, however, have not signed the agreement yet. Macron, according to the Guardian, explained that the Libyan officials have not signed because they need to “consult.”
