Libyan dialogue participants signed the Libyan Political Agreement which aims to put an end to the Libyan crisis following a ceremony attended by Arab and Western diplomats held this Saturday, 11 July 2015, at Skhirat, Morocco.

“The Skhirat Agreement was made possible thanks to the contribution of many Libyans who worked within the working groups and other groups, but also thanks to the host country, Morocco, which has played a very important role, which is not only a host role, but also a role of political support”, said U.N. Special Envoy Bernardino Leon in a statement to the press after the initialing ceremony of the agreement.

”Morocco has played a very important role in the political support to the talks between the Libyan parties, crowned by the initialing Saturday night of the Skhirat Agreement aimed at ending the political and military crisis,” added the UN official.

“This is a very important partnership between Morocco and the UN mission”, Leon said, especially that “during the next step, the parties will work on complex aspects, namely the formation of a national unity government, the negotiation of annexes (of the Agreement) and especially the involvement of armed groups, the Libyan army and the militias”.

The European Union also hailed Morocco’s support to the UN-led political dialogue.

 ”I would like to thank the UNSG Special Representative Bernardino Léon for his tireless efforts to bring parties towards a deal, and the Government of Morocco for supporting the UN led dialogue”, High Representative of the Union for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy / Vice-President of the Commission, Federica Mogherini, said in a statement.

She also underlined that this agreement is an “important step” towards restoring peace and stability in Libya, adding that with the initialing of the political agreement, the House of Representatives, the independents and representatives of Misrata proved their determination to find a peaceful solution to the crisis that, for almost one year, has divided, impoverished, and inflicted suffering on the Libyan people.
