Russia, Turkey resume talks over Libya

Turkey and Russia will hold two-day talks on Libya and Syria, the Turkish Foreign Ministry has announced.

“Ambassador and Deputy Minister Mr. Sedat Önal, accompanied by an inter-agency delegation, will visit Moscow on Aug. 31 – Sept. 1, 2020, to discuss regional developments, in particular Libya and Syria, with their Russian counterparts,” read a statement issued by the ministry on Monday.

Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Sergei Vershinin is expected to lead the Russian delegation.

The latest consultations between the two countries took place in July in Ankara, which resulted in an idea of creating a joint working group on Libya.

The talks in Moscow follow a ceasefire announced by the internationally recognized Government of National Accord (GNA) in Tripoli and the House of Representatives in Tobruk.
