Morocco’s Bouznika welcome delegation from Libya
Solution to the country's crisis must be decided by the Libyans themselves under the auspices of the UN, Moroccan Foreign Minister Nasser Bourita says
The meeting on Sunday, held at the initiative of Morocco which hosted peace talks in 2015 that led to the creation of a United Nations-recognised government for Libya, kicked off in the coastal town of Bouznika, south of Rabat.
Dubbed “Libyan Dialogue”, the talks brought together five members of the Tripoli-based Government of National Accord (GNA) and five from the Tobruk-based Parlement.
Morocco’s approach to the Libyan conflict is based on universal aims to maintain Libya’s territorial integrity, sovereignty, and the cohesion of the Libyan people.
The country believes the solution to the crisis can only come from the Libyan people, and that the crisis must be free of foreign intervention. Morocco argues that foreign involvement will further complicate the already complex situation.
Morocco also maintains that the solution in Libya must be peaceful and political to ensure the legitimacy of its future government.
Morocco’s government has repeatedly stressed that it has no agenda in Libya and only aims to support the resolution of the conflict. By facilitating Libyan peace talks in Bouznika, Morocco has reaffirmed that it plays a key role in helping to resolve the crisis.
