UN Welcomes Bouznika Understandings between Parliament and High State Council


The spokesman for the Secretary-General of the United Nations, Stéphane Dujarric, said that the United Nations welcomes the Bouznika understandings between the delegations of the Libyan Parliament and the High State Council, regarding the criteria for nominating personalities for the sovereign positions in Libya.

Dujarric added in a press statement, that the UN expresses its appreciation for the efforts aimed at reuniting Libyan parties in order to find a solution to their contentious problems, including the negotiations that took place in Morocco, Switzerland and Egypt.

Last week, the second round of the Libyan dialogue between the delegations of the High State Council and the Libyan Parliament kicked off in the Moroccan city of Bouzinka. The meeting discussed the personalities who should assume sovereign positions in the near future.

Bouznika’s first round concluded last month as rival camps in Libya announced that they had reached “a comprehensive agreement on transparent and objective criteria and mechanisms to assume and unify sovereign positions.” The two sides had announced that the meetings would be resumed in order to complete the necessary procedures meant to guarantee the implementation and activation of the agreement.
