Foreign Minister Najla Al-Manqoush has urged the Maghreb countries to support Libya in the upcoming Berlin 2 Conference, where the Government of National Unity (GNU) will unveil its plan for implementing the roadmap agreed.

In a joint press conference with her Moroccan counterpart Nasser Bourita, Al-Manqoush said she is looking forward to a Maghreb role in supporting her government's approach, stressing the importance of Moroccan diplomacy that "serves the consensus between the Libyans," as she put it.

She also underscored the importance of the strategic partnership between the two countries to address issues of common concern, the most important of which is the extremist groups and terrorism, as well as developing military and security institutions.

According to Al-Manqoush, the two sides agreed to hold a joint Libyan-Moroccan committee for consular affairs to discuss facilitating work and student visa procedures.

She called on the Moroccan government to reopen its embassy in Tripoli, raise the level of diplomatic representation, and hold a summit of the Maghreb Union as soon as possible, given its importance in maintaining security and stability of the region and its European and African neighbourhoods.
