Russia not to ‘Greenlight’ any side to Libyan conflict – Contact Group Head

The Address | Benghazi – Libya

MOSCOW – Moscow believes that the Libyan crisis should be resolved peacefully and it does not intend to support or “greenlight” any side to the conflict, according to the head of the Russian Contact Group for the intra-Libyan settlement, Lev Dengov.

He stressed that Russia was ready to hold consultations with any side to the conflict and to share its peacemaking experience.

Dengov voiced the belief that multiple sides to the Libyan conflict were unlikely to reach consensus in near future.

Head of the Russian Contact Group also raised doubts that the Russian Embassy in the Libyan capital of Tripoli, which was closed in 2013 amid escalation of tensions in the North African country, will resume its operations soon.
