Dendias discusses Libya with Moroccan counterpart


Foreign Minister Nikos Dendias (2nd from r) holds talks with Morocco’s Parliament Speaker Habib El Malki (l) in Rabat on Wednesday during his tour of Maghreb countries to discuss the Libya crisis and regional issues. He also met with his counterpart Nasser Bourita.
