Libyan Foreign Minister however continue to encourage dialogue to resolve Conflict
In that light, the Libyan and Russian Foreign Ministers held talks on Wednesday in Moscow as they encouraged the two rival governments in Libya — who signed a permanent cease-fire in October, to end the country’s years-long conflict.
The Russian Foreign Minister, Sergey Lavrov expressed his position.
To him, they should strongly encourage the two sides to enter into dialogue, and to counteract attempts of the aggressive rhetoric, and especially of the threats of restarting military action.
Mohamed Mohamed Taha Siala, the Libyan Foreign Minister, also had some meaningful words towards peace.
He said he respects the work undertaken by the former representative of Libya’s General Secretary and UN envoy for Libya Ghassan Salame, and also respects the work of the temporary representative carrying out this function, Stephanie Williams.
“We should assume that they, as Libyan people do, have to face the split in the United Nations Security Council.” Mohamed Mohamed Taha Siala said.
