Russian, Turkish foreign ministers back Libya ceasefire in call: Moscow

TEHRAN, May 21 (MNA) – Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov and Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu backed an immediate ceasefire in Libya during a phone call on Thursday, Russia’s Foreign Ministry said in a statement.

The two diplomats also supported the resumption of the United Nations political process in the North African country, the statement said, according to Reuters.

They spoke a day after the Libyan National Army of eastern military commander Khalifa Haftar said it had pulled back from some Tripoli frontlines, calling into question its ability to sustain a year-long offensive aimed at seizing the capital.
