The continuing dialog between the Libyan High Council of State and the east-based parliament began in Morocco on Monday, with the participants staying tight-lipped throughout the proceedings.

Part of the High Council of State Delegation, Abdulsalam al-Safrani said that the discussions were conducted under "good" conditions.

Speaking from Bouznika south of Rabat, where the dialog is taking place, he shared his hope that "understandings can be achieved."

The talks concentrate on the political and administrative separation, he added.

 

Delegations raised the problem of audit authority 'because they believe that this is a question that affects all Libyans.

It is because of them that services have deteriorated in Libya, leading to the spread of corruption, "he said.

The two parties had started their talks on Sunday, met again on Monday, and are due to meet again on Tuesday. They hailed Morocco's "honest" intentions and eagerness to provide the necessary fraternal conditions to hold discussions in hopes of finding a solution to the Libyan crisis.

Foreign Minister Sameh Shoukri phoned his Moroccan counterpart Nasser Bourita in Egypt to address the latest developments in Libya as part of their efforts to reach a settlement in the country.

 

The Egyptian Foreign Ministry spokesperson said Shoukri underscored Cairo's strong support for these efforts aimed at finding a political solution that would preserve Libya 's sovereignty and unity, restore security and stability, safeguard its resources and confront terrorism, extremism and foreign meddling.

They agreed to continue their consultations and coordination and to strengthen their contacts with influential Libyan political forces and international partners, including the United Nations Mission in Libya, the African Union and the Arab League.

 

The Arab League, for its part, welcomed the ongoing talks to push forward the inter-Libyan dialogue. In a statement in the run-up to the Arab Foreign Ministers meeting on Tuesday, it stated that it was following closely the talks in Bouznika, calling on all Libyan parties to demonstrate good intentions towards all efforts aimed at finding a national and comprehensive solution to their country's conflict.
