UN hails holding of Libyan dialogue in Morocco, 'takes note' of final joint statement

New York (UNA-OIC) – The United Nations welcomed, again on Friday, the holding this week in Bouznika, Morocco, of the Libyan dialogue between the delegations of the High Council of State and the House of Representatives, while taking note of the final joint statement issued at the end of these talks.

“We welcome every initiative and inclusive political effort to support a peaceful resolution of the crisis in Libya. This includes recent efforts by the Kingdom of Morocco, involving delegations from the High Council of State and the House of Representatives,” said Stéphane Dujarric, spokesperson for the UN Secretary-General.

“We take note of the joint final statement issued by the participants at the end of the meeting as well as their plans to resume the dialogue later this month,” the spokesman added in a statement sent to international media representatives accredited in New York.

The Libyan dialogue sessions brought together delegations from the Tripoli-based High Council of State and the Tobruk Parliament with the objective of maintaining the ceasefire and opening negotiations to end the conflict between the Libyan protagonists.
