The Skhirat agreement, signed by the Libyan parties in Morocco in 2015, remains the general political framework for the resolution of the crisis that has been raging in Libya for several years, the Arab League Council said on Wednesday in Cairo.
In a decision on the development of the situation in Libya, the Arab Ministerial Council expressed its support for the efforts of the United Nations to support a political settlement of the Libyan crisis, on the basis of the Libyan Political Agreement signed in Skhirat, Morocco, as a general framework for a settlement of the crisis in accordance with the relevant Security Council resolutions and the conclusions of the Berlin process and the Paris summit.
The Council also reaffirmed its commitment to the unity, sovereignty and territorial integrity of Libya, rejecting any form of external interference and supporting the efforts of the 5+5 Joint Military Committee aimed at implementing the results of the Paris summit and the Berlin process as well as the Security Council resolutions concerning the withdrawal of all foreign forces and all mercenaries from Libya without exception and within a specific timeframe.
Furthermore, the Council of the Arab League welcomed the measures taken recently, in particular the ceasefire agreement, while stressing the importance of carrying out other measures such as the release of detainees, mine clearance and the unification of security institutions to guarantee political and security stability in the country.
Morocco was represented at this meeting by Nasser Bourita, Minister of Foreign Affairs, African Cooperation and Moroccans Living Abroad, and Ahmed Tazi, Moroccan Ambassador to Egypt and Permanent Representative of the Kingdom to the Arab League.
