- 25 January 2021
Moscow will be among the first world capitals United Nations Secretary General’s new Special Envoy on Libya Jan Kubis plans to visit, Russian President’s Special Envoy for the Middle East and Africa and Deputy Foreign Minister Mikhail Bogdanov said on Monday, APA reports citing TASS.
"Yes, we spoke on Friday," he said when asked by TASS about Kubis’ possible visit to Moscow. "Of course, he is yet to get into the swing of things, hold contacts with the Libyans. Then, one of the first capitals he plans to visit in his capacity of the Libya envoy will naturally be Moscow."
So far, however, in Bogdanov's words, no concrete dates have been agreed. "But we told him we would be ready to receive him and have serious talks any time he finds convenient," Bogdanov stressed.
"I think he is also interested in it, taking into account our understanding of what is going on there, our contacts with all the Libyan parties. So, we have common interests here," he added.
