Economy A- A A+
Germany’s Chancellor Angela Merkel proposed to hold an international conference in Berlin, Germany, with both Libyan parties to resolve the crisis in Libya when meeting with Russia’s President Vladimir Putin in Moscow, Russia, on Jan. 11 to discuss the conflict in war-torn Libya.
 
Putin supported Germany’s proposal, saying, “The Berlin conference needs to ensure attendance of those states that are truly determined to help resolve the Libya crisis, [and] … its decisions should be negotiated in a preliminary plan with the Libyan parties.”
 
Germany plans to hold a summit aimed to achieve peace in Libya on Jan. 19, the two participants in the preparatory negotiations said on Jan.13, Eurasia Diary reports citing Reuters. 
 
In spite of the US sanctions on Russia, Merkel and Putin also discussed the efforts to complete Nord Stream 2—a gas pipeline under the Baltic Sea running directly from Russia’s state-owned Gazprom to Germany.
