There is a need to encourage the parties to the Libyan conflict to build dialogue, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said at a joint press conference with top diplomat of the Tripoli-based Government of National Accord Mohamed Siala on Wednesday.

“I agree that there is a need to encourage the parties to build dialogue and oppose attempts to return to the bellicose rhetoric, let alone resume military activities,” Lavrov pointed out.

According to the Russian foreign minister, the parties to the conflict and external players are taking steps to make sure that the Libyan Political Dialogue Forum becomes a sustainable platform and paves the way for specific agreements.


Participants in the Libyan Political Dialogue Forum held in Tunisia in November decided that the country would hold its presidential and parliamentary elections on December 24, 2021.
