Russia has decided to reopen its embassy in Libya, the Interfax news agency cited Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov as saying on Friday.

Lavrov said a ceasefire in the Libyan conflict, proposed by Egyptian President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi alongside commander Khalifa Haftar, who leads the Libyan National Army (LNA) in Cairo on June 6, fitted into decisions taken at an international conference in Berlin regarding the situation in the North African country.

Lavrov was speaking at the start of a meeting with the speaker of Libya’s eastern parliament, Aguila Saleh.
