Commander of Dignity Operation, renegade General Khalifa Haftar, said on Monday his army would continue fighting against “terrorists” until it takes full control of the entire country.

During his meeting with Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov in Moscow, Haftar claimed that 90% of the country’s territory is under his control, asking Russia to provide military assistance to his forces.

“We are determined to continue our struggle until the army takes full control of the Libyan territory”. He said.  

He also accused head of Presidential Council Fayez Sirraj of violating Paris agreement.

Dignity Operation militants do not differentiate between the real terrorists and the political opponents, regarding them as two sides of the same coin.

For his part, Russia's top diplomat said all mediation efforts to end Libya’s conflict should be based on the United Nations, adding that his country supports the political settlement and full-scale restoration of the statehood of Libya.

Khalifa Haftar arrived in Moscow on Saturday.
