Moroccan Foreign Minister, Nasser Bourita has explained that Abdelhadi Al-Hawij was received in Morrocco as an envoy to the Speaker of the Tobruk-based Parliament and not as foreign minister of the parallel interim government.

This came in a phone call made by Bourita with the President of the High Council of State (HCS), Khaled Al-Mashri, in which he reaffirmed that they only recognize the Skhirat Agreement and the bodies emanating from it.

The two officials reviewed preparations for the 33rd African Summit, scheduled to take place on 19 of this month, according to the information office of the HCS.
