According to eastern based Libyan government (unrecognised by most of the international community), the Consul General of Morocco, Saeed Benkirane, said flights between Libya and Morocco will return ‘‘as soon as possible’’. Benkirane is also reported as saying that visas on the Libyan side will be lifted as soon as the reasons for imposing them are removed.
The eastern based government also claimed that the Moroccan Consul General praised the state of security and stability witnessed by the city of Benghazi and all cities and regions under the control of the Libyan government and the (Khalifa Hafter’s) Libyan Arab Armed Forces.
He is also reported to have stressed the support of the Moroccan authorities for the government and the Libyan people in all fields, and that they are ready to stand with them in everything that guarantees their interests.
Benkirane was meeting with the eastern Libyan government’s Minister of African Affairs, Issa Abdelmajid, in his office in Benghazi on Sunday.
