Skhirat Agreement Remains Basis for Any Political Solution in Libya (Libyan Official)

The Skhirat agreement remains the framework and basis for any political solution in Libya, said, Wednesday in Rabat, Jumaa al-Qamati, personal envoy of the head of the National Unity Government in Libya Fayez el-Sarraj.

In a press statement after his talks with minister of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation Nasser Bourita, Jumaa expressed his deep gratitude to Morocco for its concern and for hosting the most important historical milestone, namely the Skhirat dialogue, which was a pivotal point in ending the conflict in Libya and promoting dialogue, peace, national reconciliation and political consensus.

In this regard, he stressed "the need to stop the cycle of violence and to return to the peaceful path and the Skhirat agreement in order to put an end to the transitional stage in Libya and achieve a permanent phase for the establishment of the foundations of a civil, constitutional and democratic State."

"The solution in Libya is political, consensual and peaceful and cannot be military," he said, calling on the international community and all peace-loving people around the world to take positive action to end the cycle of violence targeting civilians and indiscriminate bombing.

Jumaa also pointed out that Morocco, being a pivotal country in the Arab-Muslim world and strong in its vast and deep international relations, "we count on it to play a positive role based on its constant concern for the unity of Libyans and stability in Libya".

This meeting was an opportunity to convey the greetings of the head of the National Unity Government in Libya Fayez el-Sarraj, to HM King Mohammed VI, and to praise the role of the Sovereign, his foresight and commitment to Libya's interests as a brother country in the Maghreb region, he went on to say, commending the deep and long-standing historical, social and political ties between the two sister countries.
