During this meeting, Fassi Fihri recalled the strong ties of brotherhood and solidarity between the two peoples and their permanent commitment to Maghreb integration. He also reiterated Morocco's commitment to full respect of Libya's territorial integrity and national unity, said a statement from the Foreign Ministry.
"It is in this spirit that Morocco participated in international meetings, held in Paris, London and recently in Doha, devoted to the Libyan crisis," he added.
For his part, Boukraa gave a detailed presentation on various aspects of the tragic situation prevailing in Libya.
In this regard, Fassi Fihri recalled that the UN Security Council relevant resolutions (1970 and 1973) call for an immediate, credible and verifiable cease-fire, guaranteeing effective protection of civilians. They also advocate an inclusive political dialogue that addresses the aspirations and legitimate demands of the Libyan people at the political and socio-economic levels. Similarly, they stress the importance of the humanitarian dimension and the need to provide necessary assistance to civilians, victims of armed violence, the statement added.
It noted that Morocco’s diplomatic action supports these resolutions at the regional and international levels, as part of its contribution to finding a political solution to Libya’s crisis.
For Morocco, the Minister went on, the solution cannot be military. It should be, necessarily, political, open to the future and enable the Libyan people to decide democratically their future.
Libya is an important Maghrebian, Arab and African country, located at the heart of the southern Mediterranean and in the north of a Sahel-Saharan region which is essential for regional stability, he underlined.
Fassi Fihri also expressed the concern of the government and the Moroccan people about the painful and delicate situation of the Moroccan community in Libya and called for appropriate measures to be taken to ensure its security and protect its rights, the same source said.
