Efforts to secure peace and stability in Libya will be discussed at the meeting held at the Russian Foreign Ministry’s State Residence.

A meeting is also expected in Moscow between the head of the Libyan National Reconciliation Government (FNA), Fayez al-Sarraj, who is the legitimate representative of the Libyan side and the Libyan military coup, Khalifa Haftar. Diplomatic sources said a cease-fire agreement could also be signed.
