The security situation in Libya prevents Russian companies from resuming their work in the Libyan country, Russia’s Ambassador to Libya Ivan Molotkov told Sputnik.

“Unfortunately, the security situation does not allow our economic operators to resume their work. Businessmen are so far traveling to Tunisia and other nearby countries, carrying out contacts with Libyan counterparts, but it is too early to say that business has resumed,” Molotkov said.

He also said that Russia’s diplomatic mission was unlikely to return to Libya in the upcoming months.

“As for the upcoming months, that s unlikely, though, of course, we are considering this option just like other embassies. The security factor is very important here,” Molotkov said.
