Russia ready to broker solution to Libya’s political conflict, Bogdanov says.
The Russian Deputy Foreign Minister, Mikhail Bogdanov, met on Tuesday with a delegation of officials from Libya’s Misurata city in Moscow.
“The Russian side stressed the necessity to establish inclusive intra-Libyan dialogue with involvement of representatives of main political forces, tribal groups and the country’s regions in order to create nationwide power structures, including army and police that are ready to ensure security and order and to resist terrorist threats in an effective way, according to Sputnik.
Sputnik added that in this context, Moscow has reaffirmed its readiness to work closely with all the Libyan sides on behalf of the solutions [to the conflict] that would be mutually acceptable,” the statement said.
The Russian Foreign Ministry added that the solutions should lay the groundwork for Libya’s unity and further sustainable development as a sovereign and independent state, friendly to Russia, Sputnik indicated.
Libya’s control has been split into three governments, two in the west and one in the east and they are all fighting for control for power, including the UN-backed Government of National Accord.
