In a statement on Saturday, the Saudi Ministry of Foreign Affairs welcomed the announcement by the 6+6 Joint Committee assigned by the House of Representatives and the High Council of State that its members agreed on preparing laws regulating parliamentary and presidential elections.

That announcement was made at the conclusion of the committee’s meetings in the Moroccan city of Bouznika on Tuesday.

The Saudi Foreign Ministry statement praised Morocco's efforts to make dialogue and consensus successful, with the aim of achieving a political settlement in Libya, according to the Saudi Press Agency (SPA).

“The Kingdom hopes Libyan parties would formally sign the electoral laws as an important step to end the crisis and enhance security and stability in Libya,” said the foreign ministry.

The ministry reiterated the Kingdom’s support for efforts to strengthen Libya’s status as an influential state in the Arab region and the world, and achieve the aspiration of its people for stability and prosperity.
