Lavrov: Holding elections in Libya under current circumstances is risky

The Address | Benghazi – Libya

MOSCOW – Russia’s Foreign Minister, Sergey Lavrov, said in media statements on Thursday that holding elections in Libya under the current circumstances is risky, noting that a consensus must first be reached among all political parties in the country.

“Unfortunately, the results reached in Paris have not been clearly implemented, and as a result, the main political forces still do not have a general agreement on how this political system works,” said Lavrov, “many experts believe that holding elections under the current situation is a very large risk.”

Lavrov stressed that Moscow is trying with France and Italy, as well as European and regional partners to help solve the Libyan crisis. He also affirmed Russia’s support of the United Nations Support Mission in Libya (UNSMIL).
