Morocco Calls for Directing Arab Efforts to Support Political Solution to Libyan Crisis
Minister of Foreign Affairs, African Cooperation and Moroccan Expatriates, Mr. Nasser Bourita, stressed, in an address to the 154th session of the Arab League Council at the level of Foreign ministers, the need to work to achieve a solution to this crisis with a purely Libyan contribution, and to help provide a neutral framework for an inter-Libyan dialogue that would ensure the maintenance of national cohesion, territorial integrity and national sovereignty of Libya over all its lands, away from foreign interference.
Mr. Bourita recalled, during this virtual meeting, that Morocco has hosted a promising inter-Libyan dialogue, managed by the Libyans themselves, on the basis of the political agreement signed about five years ago in Skhirat, between the Libyan parties.
The minister underscored the commitment of the Kingdom of Morocco towards its Libyan brothers who are called upon to choose what they deem appropriate among the rules and initiatives that can remedy the lost time and engage in comprehensive political negotiations that would bring an end to the conflict and pave the way for permanent political stability.
In another context, Mr. Bourita expressed the solidarity of the Kingdom of Morocco with the sister Republic of Sudan following the recent floods that hit this country.
He also expressed his sincere condolences to the Republic of Lebanon following the explosion in the port of Beirut, highlighting the High Royal Instructions for sending emergency medical and humanitarian aid to the Republic of Lebanon, as well as for the deployment in Beirut of a military field hospital to provide emergency medical care to the people injured in this incident.
Mr. Bourita said, in this regard, that the military field hospital has so far provided more than 25,000 therapeutic and medical interventions, services that reflect in practice, he said, the solidarity of the Kingdom of Morocco with its brothers in Lebanon.
