He also recalled the previous commitments of the international parties, particularly paragraphs 37 and 38 of the conclusions of the Berlin 1 conference, urging them to support the Bouznika process which has achieved “a positive outcome”.
The two delegations said, that the dialogue sessions hosted by Morocco “were imbued with a positive atmosphere and a spirit of optimism which helped unify visions regarding the criteria for the seven posts of sovereignty in Libya”.
Omran recalled that the two delegations reached during the first round of the inter-Libyan dialogue last month an important consensus on the mechanisms for the unification of sovereign institutions, affirming that there is a willingness to continue to work on the criteria as soon as possible.
Further Omran reiterated his thanks to the Kingdom of Morocco, King, government and people, for the permanent readiness and commitment to facilitate for years the inter-Libyan dialogue at its various stages, by working to ensure all appropriate and favorable conditions to bring Libyans together and views closer to reach a consensus capable of finding solutions to unify the sovereign institutions.
In addition, he stressed that the delegation of the High Council of State and that of the House of Representatives are meeting again in Morocco to resume the inter-Libyan dialogue initiated last month to resolve issues related to state institutions, especially those sovereigns, the aim being to meet the expectations of the Libyan people and their aspirations for dignified living conditions especially in this critical juncture because of the health crisis of the Covid-19 pandemic and the degradation of basic services.
