Libyan Prime Minister Abdul Hamid Dbeibeh made his first official visit to Morocco on Sunday. Dbeibeh, who held bilateral meetings with Foreign Minister Nasser Bourita and the Head of Representatives Habib al-Maliki in the capital Rabat, called for Morocco’s support for the general elections to be held on December 24.
Prime Minister Dbeibeh stated that they aim to leave the administration of Libya to Libyans again with the elections, and that they will unite the 80 state institutions that were divided within 3 months.
During the meetings, Moroccan Head of Representatives al-Maliki emphasized that Libyans support the dialogue among themselves in the solution of the Libyan problem and the importance of Libya in the stability and security of the Maghreb region. Regarding the upcoming elections in Libya, he stated that he considers the national reconciliation process as the main key to solving the current problems.
Three days before PM Dbeibeh’s visit, the Speaker of the House of Representatives (HoR) Aguila Saleh visited Morocco. Making statements within the scope of the visit, Saleh stated that Morocco seeks a solution to the Libyan crisis with dialogue and negotiations between the parties regardless of its interests.
On 17 December 2015, with the initiative of the United Nations (UN), the contentious parties came together in Skhirat, Morocco, and the Libyan Political Agreement (LSA) was signed. In the following process, the UN-supported Government of National Accord (GNA) was established. In the following years, many meetings were hosted by Morocco, which followed active diplomacy in the Libyan crisis.
