Note to Correspondents - in response to questions on understandings reached on Libya

In response to questions on the understandings reached between Libyan parties in Morocco, the Spokesman had the following to say:
We welcome the understandings reached between members of the Libyan House of Representatives and the High State Council in Bouznika, Morocco, regarding the requirements and the appointment mechanism of the sovereign positions in accordance with the Libyan Political Agreement.  We appreciate all efforts that aim to bring Libyan together to address possible contentious issues, including these talks in Morocco as well as the talks that have taken place in Switzerland (in Montreux) and in Egypt (in Cairo and Hurghada). We believe that all these efforts pave the way for convening the UNSMIL-facilitated Libyan Political Dialogue Forum, which we plan to hold in the coming few weeks.
