Lavrov: Restoring Libya’s Sovereignty and Territorial Integrity Is Our Goal – Al Marsad

Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said today that the goal of the Russian efforts in Libya was to restore the state and its sovereignty.

(Libya, 11 August 2020) – Sergey Lavrov, during a press conference with German Foreign Minister Heiko Maas, according to the Russian Sputnik news agency, said: “We also have a common interest in resolving the situation in Libya. We reiterate the commonalities between Russia and Germany’s approaches to the political solution to this conflict based on the principles mentioned in the final documents of the Berlin Conference confirmed by the UN Security Council (UNSC) resolution.”

Lavrov added, “We proceed from the premise that the ultimate goal of all our efforts must be to restore the state’s sovereignty and maintain Libya’s territorial integrity, which the NATO adventure in 2011 flagrantly violated in contravention of the UNSC resolution.”
