Peace settlement efforts in Libya must be intensified: Russia’s Lavrov

Published: Updated:

Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said on Wednesday that international efforts to reach a peace settlement in Libya should be intensified, the RIA news agency reported.

Libya descended into chaos after the NATO-backed overthrow of leader Muammar Gaddafi in 2011. In October, the two major sides in the country’s war – the Government of National Accord (GNA) and Libyan National Army (LNA) led by Khalifa Haftar – agreed to a ceasefire.
