Lavrov: Turkey, Russia’s efforts led to signing Libyan ceasefire

The Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said Monday that experts appointed by both Moscow and Ankara “contributed to the pacification of the warring parties”, while their joint efforts led to the resumption of work in the oil industry.

 “As we speak, Russian and Turkish experts are contributing to efforts to reconcile the conflicting parties in Libya.” Lavrov told reporters.

He added that by combining Russian and Turkish efforts, they have been able to introduce a ceasefire, as well as to restart oil production, which is a key industry for the country’s economy.

“We continue working on bridging the gap in the negotiating positions of the warring parties with a view to launching political reform based on UN Security Council resolutions and the outcomes of the Berlin conference.” Lavrov remarked.
