Brussels, (MOFA)- The High Representative of the European Union (EU) for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy Josep Borrell welcomed, on Tuesday, the Moroccan initiative to host the inter-Libyan dialogue.

"We welcome the Moroccan initiative bringing together members of Libyan High State Council and House of Representatives in Bouznika," he said in a tweet.

This is "a timely contribution to ongoing UN-led efforts. The commitment by both delegations to a peaceful solution to the conflict in Libya is encouraging," he added. The European Union had previously, through its spokesperson, expressed its "gratitude" to Morocco for its efforts in favor of bringing the different Libyan parties closer, with a view to a lasting solution to the political crisis in the country.

"We are grateful to Morocco for its active role with both parties, in support of the UN-led process, said the EU spokesperson. “The EU welcomes any initiative aimed at supporting the UN-led mediation process and advancing the resolution of the Libyan conflict through a political process,” he added.

The Libyan dialogue between the delegations of the Libyan High State Council and the Parliament of Tobruk began Sunday in Bouznika. It aims to maintain the ceasefire and open negotiations to end conflicts between Libyan parties.

Thanks to the Kingdom's efforts, an agreement for a political settlement was reached in Skhirat, under the UN aegis on Dec. 17, 2015. It had enabled the creation of a government of national accord (GNA) based in Tripoli, under the authority of Fayez al-Sarraj.
