Terrorists are moving from Syria to Libya, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov stated on January 14 at the concluding press conference of the talks with Foreign Minister of Sri Lanka Dinesh Gunawardena.
“Speaking again about the connection between Syria and Libya, most of them [terrorists] are unfortunately moving to Libya in order to continue to sow discord in this country also,” the Russian Foreign Minister said.
Sergey Lavrov also said that most of Syria, around 90 %, is under control of the country’s legitimate government. Hotbeds of terrorists’ activity are gradually decreasing, especially in Idlib, the minister specified.
Lavrov said earlier that NATO’s bombardments destroyed Libya’s statehood, and now one has to deal with the outcomes of these crimes.
On January 13, Moscow hosted talks between representatives of the warring parties in Libya, Fayez al-Sarraj’s Government of National Accord, representatives of the Libyan National Army, with the participation of Russian and Turkish representatives. An armistice agreement between the parties was not signed.
