MOSCOW, January 9. /TASS/. Moscow vehemently condemns terror attacks in Libya carried out by the terrorist group Islamic State (banned in Russia), Russia's Foreign Ministry said on Saturday in the wake of the worsening situation, in particular in the political and military sphere in that country.
"We reiterate the need for urgent and coordinated international efforts in order to eliminate the terror threat both in Libya and the Middle East," the foreign ministry said noting that extremists had stepped up their activities in Libya, which "prioritises implementation of the UN Security Council's Resolution 2259 that aims to introduce law and order within the Libyan territory, to battle terrorism effectively and to revive the country's economy.".
