Speaker of Libya’s east-based Parliament supports ceasefire agreement

The Speaker of the Libyan House of Representatives (HoR) Aqila Saleh has reiterated support for the ceasefire agreement signed in Geneva on Friday.

In a joint press conference with the Moroccan Foreign Minister Nasser Bourita, Saleh said Libyans don’t war but rather they want peace, adding that he looks forward to carrying out dialogue rounds with the support of Rabat to push for a political solution.

“Libyans were happy to see the ceasefire agreement take effect, saying flights between Tripoli and eastern region started and roads will be open in a few days. Even the Libyan dinar started to gain some more value against dollar on the black market.” Saleh said.

Meanwhile, the Moroccan Foreign Minister said his country backs up the ceasefire agreement in Libya, urging the international community to respect the agreement to move toward a comprehensive political solution.

He said Bouznika dialogue between Libyan warring parties was the stepping stone for change and for acceptance among Libyan parties who attended the dialogue without any foreign presence.
