Russia has no plans to carry out air strikes in Libya, a stronghold of ISIS militants, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said on Friday.
“This is not in our plans. We have had no requests of this kind from the government of Libya ... and there is no government of Libya as such,” Lavrov told a news conference during a visit to Italy.
Lavrov also said Russia sees a U.S.-led coalition hitting ISIS militants in Syria as a potentially effective partner in the Arab republic.
Earlier, French Prime Minister Manuel Valls said Friday that international efforts to crush ISIS will increasingly have to extend to Libya where the militants are getting a hold.
