The Libyan High Council of State (HCS) said in a statement made to the media Saturday rejects that it rejects any form of dialogue with the "war criminal and terrorist Khalifa Haftar".

Libya's High Council of State urged to work more actively with the Government of National Accord (GNA) to help it control the entire country, reiterating that any new agreements should be based on Morocco's Skhirat Agreement of December 2015.

The Libyan High Council of State hailed as well the role of the countries which helped repel Haftar forces and mercenaries' aggression on Tripoli, especially Turkey and Qatar.

It also urged the House of Representatives to immediately work on the agreement to decrease Presidential Council membership and separate it from the government in state sovereign positions.

The HCS called for an end of the transitional phase in the country and for holding a constitution referendum, urging the rebuilding the state military institution and for reopening oil fields and ports, bringing all people behind blockade to justice.
