Turkey and Russia have agreed to maintain contact towards finding a political solution to the Libyan crisis, a statement by the Turkish Foreign Ministry said on Tuesday.

The statement referred to the two-day visit of a Turkish delegation headed by Deputy Foreign Minister, Sedat Onala to Moscow to discuss the situation in Libya and Syria.

The meeting touched upon the need to define modalities for the demilitarization process in these regions and to evacuate all foreign fighters to achieve a permanent and sustainable ceasefire in Libya.

"Turkey had declared its support during the meetings for the efforts of the UN-led 5+5 Joint Military Commission (JMC) among the Libyan sides," Turkish Deputy Foreign Minister said.

He indicated that the Turkish side stressed the importance of starting inclusive intra-Libyan political dialogue under the auspices of the UN, as well as adhering to the Berlin Conference resolutions.
