The head of the Russian contact group on intra-Libyan settlement, Lev Dengov said that the initiative presented by Khalifa Haftar, regarding the holding of a forum for national reconciliation, after his attempt to take over Tripoli by military force, is illogical.

"Russia sees no solution to the Libyan crisis only through a dialogue between the Presidential Council head, Fayez Al-Sarraj and Khalifa Haftar, as well as the other Libyan parties," Dengov said, according to the Russian news agency Sputnik.
