Russia has no plans to establish a base in Libya: Lavrov

The Address | Benghazi – Libya

MOSCOW – When asked if Russia had plans to establish military bases in Libya, as it did in Syria, Lavrov told Agenzia Giornalistica Italia (AGI) that there were no similarities between both countries.

Russia’s presence in Syria is at the behest of the Syrian government and complies with the standards of international law, Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said, fully.

Lavrov stated that “Libya is still undergoing a process of restructuring its state institutions,” adding that external interference in the Libyan conflict is unacceptable, Sputnik reported yesterday.

“Russia’s aim is to help Libyans overcome existing differences and reach firm agreements on the criteria of national reconciliation,” reaffirming his position that external interference, especially military action in the Libyan conflict, is absolutely inadmissible,” he added.
