Moroccan Minister of Foreign Affairs, Nasser Bourita, called to avoid turning Libya into a "commercial asset at the expense of the interests of the people," saying that the settlement of the crisis must be carried out by and for the Libyans.

Bourita said that any solution should emerge from a dialogue between the Libyans themselves, in a statement to reporters on the sidelines of his participation in the 33rd Summit of the African Union, in the Ethiopian capital Addis Ababa, which began yesterday.

He stressed the need for the United Nations to be the only framework for discussing a solution to the crisis, through the UN envoy Ghassan Salamé, calling on the African Union to support this path, and he continued: "Morocco has always emphasized that external interference will not help to settle the Libyan crisis."

He also mentioned the role of the Skhirat agreement, signed in Morocco, in gathering Libyans and to show their ability to find a solution to the crisis.
