lavrov meets libyan vice president and foreign minister on monday, lavrov said

Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov is scheduled to meet Libya's Deputy Prime Minister Ahmed Maiteiq and Foreign Minister Mohamed Sayala, according to a Russian foreign ministry source.

Russian news agencies quoted the source as saying: "The Russian Foreign Minister will hold a meeting with the Vice President of the Government of National Reconciliation and Libyan Foreign Minister, on Monday." The source confirmed that "preparations are underway" for the meeting.

The meeting comes amid heightened tension in Libya against the backdrop of continued fighting on the outskirts of the Libyan capital of Tripoli, between the forces loyal to the government of the Accord (internationally recognized) and units of the "Libyan National Army" under the guidance of Khalifa Khalifa.

On 4 April, the Libyan National Army launched an attack on Tripoli, the headquarters of the Al-Wefaq government, in the move of Berra Hafter to liberate the city from "terrorist militias".

The attack has provoked condemnation by several international capitals. The Al-Wefaq government, headed by its President, Fayez Al-Sarraj, accused a group of countries of supporting Hafter or not taking positions that do not categorically reject his "aggression" against the Libyan capital.

Earlier this month, a spokesman for the government of the Libyan National Accord, Muhannad Younis, that the Foreign Minister, Mohamed Tahir Sayala, will go to Moscow in the coming period, "to clarify what is happening from an attack on the capital to the Russian government."

"We expect from Russia to have a clearer position in the Security Council to reject the attack on the capital, and what the attacking forces are bombing civilians and airports and committing war crimes."
