Morocco reasserted its support to addressing Libya’s issue related to the spread of armed and terrorist groups in some parts of the country.
Rabat – Libya’s Interior Minister Fathi Bashagha praised Morocco’s ongoing support to the stability of his country.
Bashagha said in a press briefing that the Skhirat Agreement remains the ideal framework to achieve a national reconciliation.
“Morocco has always stood on the side of Libyans in a neutral manner and has provided them great support by hosting the Skhirat talks that led to the signing of the Skhirat Agreement, which is an “ideal framework” for reconciliation,“ stated Bashagha.
Following talks with Morocco’s Minister of Foreign Affairs Nasser Bourita, the Libyan minister welcomed the efforts of King Mohammed VI and all Moroccans, calling on brotherly and foreign countries to provide all the necessary assistance to Libya and support it through positive intervention.
The two ministers’ talks mainly focused on security issues and the ways to achieve stability and avoid political and military chaos, in addition to the fight against organized crime, terrorism, and undocumented migration.
Bourita said that discussions resulted in reaffirming King Mohammed VI‘s support to efforts aimed at restoring stability in Libya. He also confirmed that Morocco is still standing by the side of its “Libyan brothers” to address Libyans issues, on the basis of the Skhirat agreement.

The Moroccan minister also highlighted the importance of the security approach in dealing with the Libyan issue, as well as the whole political process in the country.
