Bouznika, Morocco- (PanOrient News) The Moroccan foreign minister, Nasser Bourita, commented that both parties involved in an inter-Libyan dialogue in Bouznika, Morocco were determined to continue with meetings in Morocco to work toward bringing Libya’s transitional period to an end.

Nasser said that the parties showed “determination to continue their consultative meetings, in the Kingdom of Morocco, in order to coordinate the action of political, executive and control institutions, thus ensuring the end of the transitional period.”

The aim of the dialogue is working toward a solution to Libya’s chaotic internal situation, which has been dominated by rival governments and various militant groups since the death of Muammar Gaddafi in 2011. The second round of talks in Bouznika took place from October 2-6 and ended with agreements on criteria for filling sovereignty positions in Libya.

Delegations from the Libyan High Council of State and the House of Representatives, representing rival governing bodies in the country, were involved in the round of talks. A declaration was issued saying that it will be possible to capitalize on the outcomes of the dialogue to “establish stability in the country and put an end to the institutional division.”

Last month, U.N. Spokesman for the Secretary-General Stéphane Dujarric released a statement showing support for Morocco’s role in helping find a solution to the Libyan crisis.

“We trust that the latest initiative by Morocco will have a positive impact on the United Nations facilitation of the Libyan owned and Libyan led political dialogue,” said the U.N. statement.
