Lavrov: Russia has been initially involved in resolving Libyan crisis
Russia has been initially actively involved in resolving the Libyan crisis, Russia's acting Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said at the press conference, following talks in Berlin.
According to him, the fact that the Libyan rival representatives were at all present at talks in Berlin was due to Russia's effort.
"Russia was involved in the preparations from the very beginning, we attended all five preparatory rounds. It was due to our insistence that the organizers gave up their initial plan to meet without the Libyan parties. The Libyan leaders — Fayez Sarraj of the Government of National Accord and Khalifa Haftar of the Libyan National Army — were invited to attend the conference," Sputnik cited him as saying.
Lavrov noted that the final document is a detailed guidance on how to overcome the crisis in Libya, including provisions for ensuring a sustainable ceasefire.
