The multiplicity of initiatives is not conducive to settle the Libyan crisis as it disperses efforts and wastes time, Morocco’s Foreign Minister Nasser Bourita said.
Libyans should come together around the SKhirate agreement, which paves the way for a transitory period and elections to end the crisis politically, Nasser Bourita said after talks with President of the High Council of State of Libya, Khaled Meshri.
Morocco has no agenda in Libya, Bourita made it clear, adding that there would be no military solution to the conflict in the oil-rich North African country.
Khaled Meshri noted that the political agreement, which serves as a reference for the Libyan institutions, was achieved thanks to the support provided by Morocco and to the directives of King Mohammed VI to offer the Libyans all the means to reach a Libyan-Libyan solution.
There may be new reconciliation initiatives, but Libya no longer needs political initiatives and has a clear road map aimed at respecting the Skhirat political agreement and organizing as soon as possible a constitutional referendum, ahead of presidential and parliamentary elections, he said.
In addition, nothing guarantees the application of new initiatives or new agreements, whether in Berlin or Geneva, said the Libyan official, stressing that “the international and individual efforts of some countries do not help to resolve the Libyan crisis, but complicate it more.”
