RABAT - Morocco is seeking a political solution to the Libyan crisis, an official source at the foreign ministry said on Friday after Moroccan officials met representatives of Muammar Gaddafi and rebels this week.

The source gave no details of how close any such deal might be or what it might entail."Morocco's efforts are limited to humanitarian aid and to working and contributing to reaching a political solution through dialogue," the source told Reuters.

Such solution should "respond to the aspirations of the Libyan people and ensure a return of stability which is extremely important for the Mediterranean and sub-Saharan Africa," the source added.
