Lavrov: Saleh, Al-Sarraj’s stances in last August paved way for political process resumption

Russia is interested in resuming full bilateral cooperation with Libya in all areas, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov told Tobruk-based Speaker of Libya’s House of Representatives Aqila Saleh , who arrived in Moscow on an official visit on Tuesday.

“The sooner post-conflict settlement is completed and normal post-conflict life begins, the quicker we will be able to resume bilateral cooperation in all areas: energy, transport infrastructure, as well as economic and investment projects in general for the benefit of our peoples,” Lavrov said.

“We are interested in resuming other forms of contact as well, such as parliamentary exchanges.” Lavrov added, saying that the process to re-launch the political process in Libya continues and gains momentum.

“The ceasefire has been observed for quite a lengthy period of time. Your meeting with Fayez Al-Sarraj this August played an important role in restarting the political process. Despite certain difficulties, the process continues, and gains momentum,” Lavrov added.

He said Russia particularly welcomes the determination to include all key political forces and all regions into the settlement process.
