Lavrov: Russia will continue efforts to resolve the crisis in Libya


Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said efforts to resolve the crisis in Libya would continue.

At a joint press conference after meeting with Sri Lankan Foreign Minister Dinesh Gunawardena in the capital Colombo, Lavrov spoke on issues related to Libya and Syria.

He recalled that NATO in 2011 bombed Libya. “The consequences of this illegal adventure are being seen by all, including the people of Libya. Akoka Libya does not have a state structure,” Lavrov said.

Noting that talks were held yesterday between the Libyan parties and the Turkish and Russian delegations in the Russian capital Moscow, Lavrov warned that a final outcome on the issue of resolving the crisis in Libya had not yet been reached.

“Efforts to resolve the Libyan crisis must unite. We will continue efforts in this direction,” the Russian diplomat said.

Lavrov has warned that some groups of fighters continue their activities in Syria’s Idlib region.

“Most terrorists go to Libya to disturb the waters. The problem in northeast Syria needs to be resolved. This problem has to do with the US illegal presence there. The US fosters separatism in the east of the Euphrates,” Lavrov said.
