"Sergey Lavrov reiterated Russia’s readiness for constructive cooperation with Libya’s interim government in the interests of the soonest overcoming of the protracted crisis in that country. He also stressed Russia’s commitment to closer cooperation in the interests of further development of traditionally friendly Russian-Libyan relations," the ministry said, adding that the Russian top diplomat noted that the newly-elected Libyan politicians had quite difficult tasks ahead of them and wished the success.
