During his official visit to Morocco Sunday, Prime Minister of the Libyan Government of National Unity (GNU) Abd Alhamid Aldabaiba stressed the necessity of activating the Arab Maghreb Union and overcoming all the difficulties and challenges it faces in order to contribute to moving Maghreb relations at all levels, especially economic, commercial and cultural. He also expressed Libya’s hope to hold the summit of the Maghreb Union at the earliest opportunity.
Aldabaiba had met with the Prime Minister of Morocco, Saad Eddine El Othmani, the Speaker of the Moroccan House of Representatives, Habib El Malki, and the Minister of Foreign Affairs, Nasser Bourita.
The Prime Minister and his accompanying delegation also discussed with the Moroccan side the necessity of convening a joint consular committee to facilitate visa and residency procedures and activate tourism activity between the two countries, as well as holding the ninth meeting of the joint higher committee, which has not been held since 2009.
For its part, the Moroccan side affirmed its welcome, and its emphasis on continuing to support the Libyan brothers in their march towards stability and the consolidation of bilateral relations, and the outstanding issues between the two countries were resolved, especially since there have been no visits between the two governments since 2013.
