Libyan crisis: Russian foreign minister calls for national dialogue
Russia’s foreign minister Sergei Lavrov is pushing for an inclusive national dialogue in Libya.
He made this known at talks with Fayez Seraj, the Libyan Prime Minister of the U.N.-backed government in Tripoli.
On his part, Seraj said he hopes Moscow might act as an intermediary between him and Khalifa Haftar, a military commander supported by factions based in the east of the country.
Seraj’s Government of National Accord has been trying to formulate plans for unified Libyan security forces since arriving in Tripoli, but has made little progress.
