NEW ROUND OF UN-FACILITATED LIBYAN POLITICAL DIALOGUE OPENS IN RABAT

RABAT, April 16– A new round of the Libyan political dialogue, hosted by Morocco and facilitated by the United Nations Support Mission in Libya (UNSMIL) with the aim of ending the political crisis and military conflict in the country, has started in Skhirat on the outskirts of Rabat.

Participants to the latest round of the dialogue which began Wednesday are expected to present their remarks regarding the overall framework outlined in the “Draft Agreement on the Political Transition in Libya”, which includes the key issues of forming a government of national unity and security arrangements, including a ceasefire and withdrawal of armed groups from the cities, said UNSMIL in a statement here.

Significant progress has been achieved in earlier rounds of the dialogue, the last of which ended on March 26, the UNSMIL said, adding that since then, the participants had had the opportunity to consult with their constituencies and key stakeholders on a proposal for a comprehensive solution to end the conflict in Libya.

UNSMIL believes this current round may be decisive in consolidating the significant progress achieved so far.

“The Mission is confident that the Libyan participants are coming to the talks in a spirit of reconciliation and determination to reach a political agreement to bring peace and stability to Libya”, the statement said.
