Russia believes Saif Gaddafi can run for Libya’s presidential elections
“We support everyone. We assume that no one can be isolated and excluded from the constructive political process. Therefore, we maintain contacts with all groups in the west, east and south [of Libya],” Bogdanov said, answering the question on whether Gaddafi’s son had asked Moscow for support and whether he would receive it, according to Sputnik.
“Historically, this society is tribal, that is, the position of different tribes is of great importance, so I think that Dr Saif Islam and those who support him, some tribes in certain parts of the country, should be an integral part of the process together with other political parties that are located in Tobruk, Tripoli, Misrata,” the official added.
