The two ministers reiterated the need for all parties to respect the ceasefire and to remain fully engaged in the political process.

The Russian Minister expressed his appreciation for Morocco's efforts on the Libyan issue, in light of the inter-Libyan talks held in Bouznika. In this regard, the two Ministers insisted on the need to work for a convergence of international efforts and the imperative to work for the Libyans to take ownership of the efforts made.
