The Address | Benghazi – Libya
MOSCOW – A joint panel of lawmakers from Russia and Libya will serve as a bridge between the two legislatures, Lev Dengov, the head of the Russian contact group on Libyan peace, told Sputnik.
The pact to set up a standing cooperation committee was signed Thursday by lawmakers from the Russian State Duma and Libya’s House of Representatives based in Tobruk.
“The agreement on the creation of a high-level joint committee by the Russian and Libyan parliaments will allow for cooperation between Russian officials and Libyan lawmakers, who pay a key role in the Libyan peace process,” Dengov said.
Speaker of the House of Representatives, Aguila Saleh, arrived on Friday in Moscow with his accompanying delegation for an official visit.
