The Address | Benghazi – Libya

MOSCOW – The General Commander of the Libyan National Army (LNA) Field Marshal Khalifa Haftar met Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu on Wednesday for talks on resolving the conflict in the north African state, the Russian defense ministry said in a statement.

Shoigu and Haftar discussed the situation in Libya and “the important role of talks” held in Moscow in January as well as “the need to fulfil” terms agreed at an international summit in Berlin later last month, Moscow said.

The statement did not say where the meeting took place.

Haftar and Shoigu “once more noted the lack of an alternative to political ways of resolving the intra-Libyan crisis” and their commitment to Libya’s “independence, unity and territorial integrity,” the Moscow defense ministry statement said.
