Egypt: Arab FMs want Libyans to respect Skhirat deal on national reconciliation govt.

Cairo, Egypt (PANA) – The Arab Foreign Affairs ministers have urged stakeholders in the Libyan crisis to respect the Libyan political deal signed in the Moroccan city of Skhirat on 17 December and which sets the platform for the formation of a national coalition government.

In a declaration on the latest developments in the Libyan crisis adopted Thursday at the seat of the Arab League, the ministers expressed the hope that the deal will put an end to the suffering of the Libyans and pave the way for the beginning of a new era that includes the achievement of the aspirations of the Libyan people and the restoration of peace, security and stability.

They urged them to join the train for the Libyan national reconciliation process.

The foreign ministers underlined their full commitment to Libya’s sovereignty, independence, territorial integrity and national unity, saying "We are pleased about the regional and international efforts aimed at establishing the needed security systems to make sure that the national reconciliation government works directly from the capital, Tripoli."

To the militias and armed groups, the ministers said the authority of the incoming government must be respected.

They also underlined the commitment of all member countries of the Arab League to provide aid and assistance to the national reconciliation government, giving the risks and difficulties it may come across in the exercise of their duties.
