The Russian Foreign Minister, Sergey Lavrov, confirmed that dialogue and consultations, which took place some days ago between the Russians and Turks in Ankara, were aimed at assisting the Libyan parties to consolidate the ceasefire.

Lavrov stressed in a televised statement, the need to reach an agreement between the Libyans themselves, saying that Russia and Turkey could use their good influence to persuade the parties to consolidate the situation on the ground, in order that fighting does not resume, which would allow time to implement the Berlin program.

He also called for a solution to the oil problem, along with a political solution to the present crisis and fair and all-inclusive elections in the country.
