UNITED NATIONS, Oct. 7 (Xinhua) -- The United Nations on Wednesday welcomed an agreement between representatives of the two rival legislatures of Libya over sovereign positions reached in Bouznika, Morocco.

"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," said Stephane Dujarric, spokesman for UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres.

"We appreciate all efforts that aim to bring Libyans 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)," he said.

The United Nations believes that all these efforts pave the way for convening the UN-facilitated Libyan Political Dialogue Forum, which the world body plans to hold in the coming few weeks, said the spokesman. Enditem
