The Minister of Foreign Affairs and Cooperation, Mr. Salaheddine Mezouar, received, on Thursday 15 May 2014, in Rabat, Mr. Tarek Mitri, Special Representative of the Secretary-General of the United Nations and Head of the United Nations Support Mission in Libya (UNSMIL), who is paying a visit to Morocco, from 14 to May 16 2014.
The two parties addressed the situation in Libya and the assistance that the Kingdom of Morocco provides to this country, within the framework of the programs carried out under the auspices of the United Nations, aiming at building institutions, promoting security and stability, and ensuring a successful transition period in Libya.
Mr. Tarek Mitri welcomed the role played by Morocco for the stability of Libya, and the Moroccan model with regards to the reforms, hoping to benefit from the experience of Morocco in reconciliation and transitional justice.
For his part, the Minister of Foreign Affairs and Cooperation expressed Morocco’s readiness to provide assistance to the brotherly Libya until it enjoys stability and security, and succeeds in building its democratic institutions.
It is worth to recall that the visit of the UN Official aims at taking advantage from the Moroccan experience in a number of areas, and explore ways to support the international efforts to maintain security and stability in Libya, particularly with regard to training and capacity building, national reconciliation, transitional justice, institutions building, and Human Rights.
It is also to be noted that, under the guidance of His Majesty the King Mohammed VI, may God assist Him, the Kingdom of Morocco has always expressed its willingness to share its experience in various fields with the brotherly Libyans, to fulfil the aspirations of the Libyan people in achieving security, stability, development and prosperity.
