2 Libyan delegations to political talks in Morocco flown home

Rabat, Morocco (PANA) - Two flights from Casablanca's Mohamed V International Airport in Morocco have flown home members of the two Libyan delegations that took part in talks in Bouznika, Morocco, aimed at settling Libya's political crisis.

Also flown home are Libyans who were stranded in Morocco since last March following the suspension of flights because of the spread of the new coronavirus (Covid-19).

The Moroccan newspaper, "Akhbar Al Youm", said in its Thursday edition that the two flights, organized following the instructions of the King of Morocco, Mohamed VI, will go one to Tripoli and the other to Tobruk.

The newspaper said that the flight to Tripoli's M'itika airport left on Tuesday with the delegation of the Libyan High State Council and other Libyans who were stranded in Morocco.

It said that the second flight departed Wednesday from Casablanca to the "Dar Salam" airport in Tobruk, carrying the delegation of the Libyan Parliament, stranded Libyans and Moroccans living in Libya.

The Libyan embassy in Morocco had required all those wishing to travel to Libya to produce a valid passport and a test certificate proving that they are Covid-19 negative.

Both flights were operated by the Libyan airline, "El Barrak", the newspaper reported.
