Russian Foreign Minister, Sergey Lavrov has said that his country considers the Berlin Conference a "small step" towards a settlement in Libya, although "a lack of confidence still prevails between the two parties to the conflict," according to Lavrov.

"It is still impossible to organize a dialogue between the two parties to the Libyan conflict," Lavrov told a news conference following the Berlin meeting.

He said that the meeting was useful, but efforts to launch a serious dialogue between the two parties have yet to succeed; owing to the deep divergences of views between the two sides."
