Minister of Foreign Affairs, African Cooperation and Moroccan Expatriates, Mr. Nasser Bourita, stressed, Thursday 10th September 2020, in Bouznika, Morocco, that the compromises born from the meetings of the two delegations of the Libyan High Council of State and the Tobruk Parliament have confirmed the Kingdom’s belief that Libyans are capable of finding solutions to their problems without tutelage or influence as they are able to determine the interest of Libya and the way to serve it.
Speaking shortly before the reading of the final joint statement issued at the end of the meetings of the two delegations within the framework of the Libyan dialogue, Mr. Bourita noted that the Kingdom has always been convinced – which was also confirmed during the Bouznika meetings – that the High Council of State and the House of Representatives are the cornerstone for any progress towards finding solutions to issues concerning the Libyan crisis.
He also stressed that the important compromises reached by the two delegations regarding the appointment to the posts of sovereignty are not a mere declaration of intentions or recommendations, but rather compromises and concrete decisions about institutions and issues that have a direct impact on the daily life of the Libyan people.
The Minister further congratulated the two delegations on these compromises, considering that the institutions subject to these decisions symbolize the unity of the State and that the unification of these institutions is an essential element of any future solution to the crisis in Libya.
He also praised the positive atmosphere and the spirit of fraternity and responsibility that reigned during these meetings, where the interest of Libya and its people took precedence over any other consideration. He also welcomed the compromises “which augur well and bring good news” to the Libyans.
In addition, Mr. Bourita expressed his thanks to all the countries and regional organizations that expressed their support for the Libyan dialogue in Bouznika and the efforts of both delegations to reach compromises.
In the final joint communiqué sanctioning the Bouznika meetings, the two Libyan delegations announced that they had reached a comprehensive agreement on transparent and objective criteria and mechanisms for occupying positions of sovereignty.
They also agreed to continue this dialogue and to resume meetings during the last week of this month in order to complete the necessary measures to ensure the implementation and activation of this agreement.
At the end of the work of this dialogue, the two Libyan delegations expressed their thanks and their gratitude for the efforts of the Kingdom of Morocco to create the appropriate conditions for the dialogue and to His Majesty King Mohammed VI for the support and assistance to help the Libyan people and to achieve stability and security in Libya.
The two delegations have expressed their thanks and gratitude for the efforts of the Kingdom of Morocco in the revival of the Libyan dialogue, as well as for its impartial position.
