RABAT, Sept. 6 (Xinhua) -- Libya's two rival legislative bodies, the High Council of State based in the capital Tripoli and the east-based parliament the House of Representatives started on Sunday evening a two-day dialogue in Morocco, Moroccan official news agency MAP reported.

This dialogue in Bouznika city near the capital Rabat "aims to maintain the cease-fire and open negotiations to resolve the differences between the Libyan parties," MAP said.

Moroccan Foreign Minister Nasser Bourita, who chaired the opening session, urged the two sides to engage in "a practical dialogue that would lead to an agreement to get Libya out of the crisis," highlighting Morocco's readiness "to create a space that helps Libyans discuss their issues in a constructive spirit according to their will."

This meeting comes weeks after the separate visits of President of the High Council of State Khalid al-Mishri and Speaker of the House of Representatives Aquila Saleh to Morroco.

In 2015, Morocco host in its city of Skhirat UN-brokered peace talks between Libya's conflicting parties that led to the Libyan Political Agreement.

Still, the North African country has remained divided between authorities in the east and west after this agreement. Enditem
