Egypt’s capital, Cairo, will host a three-day conference on Sunday to discuss ongoing developments in the Libyan crisis. Members from the Libyan Parliament and the High Council of State (HCS) will participate in these sessions.

Libyan sources said that the meeting will mainly cover the constitutional course of Libya and will be under the auspices of the United Nations.

The upcoming meetings in Cairo will follow the progress of the second round of the Libyan dialogue between the Libyan parties in the Moroccan city of Bouznika.

The Moroccan Foreign Minister, Nasser Bourita, stated that the parties to the Libyan dialogue had reached an agreement on the allocation of sovereign roles and noted that “Libyans can solve their problems without any external intervention.”

“One of the reasons that led to the success of the dialogue in Bouznika was that it was intra-Libyan,” the Moroccan minister added. “It was established by the Libyans without foreign control or intervention, selected by the Libyans, and led by the Libyans; this is an important thing because it opened the way for the Libyans to understand each other.”

Bourita went on saying: “What we feel is that these talks have a positive and long breath that will not stop at obstacles, and there is a determination to overcome these obstacles.”

Notably, a new session was launched in the Moroccan city of Bouznika for the second round of the Libyan Dialogue, in order to put an end to the political tension the country has experienced for many years.

For his part, a member of the Libyan Parliament, Idris Omran, confirmed that the minutes of the consensus reached between the Libyan parties in recent meetings held in the Moroccan city of Bouznika will be presented to the institutions of the Parliament and the High Council of State.

He added that “the second round of the Libyan dialogue reached understandings on the criteria for selecting the sovereign positions.”

The representative of the Libyan Parliament confirmed the continuation of the consultative meetings in Morocco.
