The Address | Benghazi – Libya

MOSCOW – Founder of Libyan Institute for Advanced Studies, Aref Ali Nayed, met to today with Russian Deputy Foreign Minister, Mikhail Bogdanov, in Moscow where they both discussed “the disastrous humanitarian situation in Tripoli”, according to a statement via Nayed’s Facebook page.

The meeting also discussed “ways to support efforts of the United Nations Support Mission in Libya to hold a cease-fire and civilian relief, and the importance of the Russian role in the Security Council deliberations on Libya”.

Tripoli recently witnessed violent clashes between rival militias all funded by the proposed Government of National Accord, which resulted in the killing of more than 100 people, while hundreds of others were wounded, displaced, or missing.

On the other hand, the Libyan National Army spokesman Brigadier General Ahmed al-Massmari said that LNA has nothing to do with the ongoing clashes between the militias in Tripoli, and that the army continues to fully secure all the areas under its control such as the entire region of Cyrenaica east of Libya, and large parts of the south and the Libyan west.
