Rabat - Minister of Foreign Affairs Nasser Bourita has reiterated Morocco’s support for an inter-Libyan solution under the aegis of the United Nations.
Bourita made his remarks at a joint press conference with UN Special Envoy to Libya Ghassan Salame on Monday in Rabat.
In his statement, Bourita said that Morocco supports the UN plan to reach a final settlement for the Libyan crisis.
Bourita emphasized that Morocco supports a Libyan-formed solution, and within the framework of the United Nations efforts as the only body capable of solving the problem.
The official added that Morocco has always been attentive to the positions and points of view of the UN special envoy to Libya.
“Morocco attaches particular interest to the resolution of this problem,” said Bourita.
While at the Paris summit on the Libyan crisis in May, Bourita reiterated Morocco’s commitment to a political solution in Libya to regain peace, stability, and development.
He said the Maghreb needs a stable Libya.
“Morocco will be at the side of Libya and its people. It does not have a hidden agenda or interests other than Libya itself: to return to the path of peace, stability and development,” Bourita said.
The summit 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.
The four Libyan leaders agreed to “work constructively with the United Nations to hold credible and peaceful elections on December 10 and to respect the results of the elections,” but they did not sign their names to the agreement.
