The head of the High Council of State, Khaled Al-Mishri, said that the Morocco dialogue meetings discussed setting the appropriate framework for the implementation of Article 15 of the political agreement signed in Skhirat at the end of 2015 regarding the positions of sovereignty, denying at the same time that these meetings “dealt with the names of the occupants of these positions.”

Last week, the Moroccan city of Bouznika witnessed a round of political dialogue between the High Council of the State and the House of Representatives, which culminated in a final statement calling for the continuation of the dialogue and the resumption of these meetings in the last week of September.

Al-Mishri confirmed that during these meetings, “no final mention was made of the transfer of sovereign institutions outside the capital, the composition of the presidential council or the mechanism for selecting its members,” considering that “these rumors are an attempt to obstruct the dialogue.”

Al-Mishri considered that Libya is at a crossroads, with the choice being either "war or a dialogue between us as Libyans that establishes confidence-building, seeks to end the division, leads to a referendum on the constitution and an end to the transitional period with fair and transparent elections."

He said, "At this time we reject a military solution, but if it is imposed on us, we will fight it, just as we fought the aggression on Tripoli."
