The head of Libya's High Council of State, Khalid Al-Mishri, discussed in a telephone conversation with Moroccan Foreign Minister Nasser Bouraita today, the preparations for the thirty-third African Summit scheduled to be held on the ninth and tenth of this month.

The discussion also touched on the developments in the political situation in Libya, and in this context the two parties agreed to develop communication on the relevant files between the two countries, according to a statement.

The statement added that Bouraita emphasized that his country “only recognizes the Skhirat Agreement, as the framework of the political process in Libya, and that it only recognizes the legitimate bodies emanating from it,” explaining that Morocco’s reception of “Abdel Hadi Al-Hawij (the Minister of Foreign Affairs for the Interim Government) was in his capacity as an envoy to the Speaker of the House of Representatives in Tobruk and not as Foreign Minister."

The current session of the African Summit, which is being held at the headquarters of the African Union in the Ethiopian capital, Addis Ababa, brings together heads of 55 member states and begins under the slogan "silencing the guns: creating conditions for Africa's development."
