Russia has urged to convene the Libyan military committee at the earliest to address the issue of cease-fire.

Deputy Foreign Minister Mikhail Bogdanov said on Tuesday he expects a dialogue within the format in Geneva will pave the way for lasting peace in the region.

“We urge that they convene as soon as possible. […] The main thing is to stop the fighting and establish an inclusive, inter-Libyan dialogue. The main and primary task is to initiate contacts between Libyans so that they reach a consensus on all these proposals,” Bogdanov told reporters in Moscow.
