Politics A- A A+

Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov commented on the failure to reach a ceasefire agreement between Libyan Field Marshal Khalifa Haftar and the UN-backed government, Eurasia Diary reports citing Sputnik.

"If Libya could become 'a second Syria', I believe the Libyan people will benefit from this. Unfortunately, there is no statehood in Libya so far," Lavrov said at a press conference, held after talks with Sri Lankan Foreign Minister Dinesh Gunawardena.

"The Libyan statehood was bombed by NATO in 2011, and we are still facing the consequences of this illegal, criminal escapade, the Libyan people first of all," Lavrov said.

The Russian foreign minister noted the need to urge the conflicting parties in Libya to negotiate instead of resorting to using force.
