The Head of the High Council of State (HCS), Mohamed Takala, indicated that the several rounds of Libyan political dialogue that were hosted by the Kingdom of Morocco had established an institutional framework to end the conflict in Libya.
This came during a joint press conference with the Moroccan Minister of Foreign Affairs, Nasser Bourita, following discussions between them on Thursday. Takala stressed that the HCS is confident in the ability of Morocco to further support the political process in Libya.
For his part, Bourita reiterated Morocco’s adherence to its “steadfast positions” regarding the political conflict in Libya, stressing its keenness to bring the various parties closer together through negotiations and not to directly interfere in Libyan internal affairs.
Bourita also stressed that the elections cannot be bypassed, and no stable future for Libya can be imagined without them. Bourita added that Morocco is optimistic and has full confidence in the ability of the Libyan parties to reach solutions, adding that there should be no external interference, pointing out that the Libyans can, in the current international and regional context, move towards a political process to reach elections.
