MOSCOW, May 13. /TASS/. Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov has discussed in a telephone conversation with his Italian counterpart Paoli Gentiloni the assistance to sides in the Libyan conflict, the Russian Foreign Ministry said on Friday adding that the conversation was initiated by Gentiloni.
"The foreign ministers of the two countries discussed separate issues on Russian-Italian agenda. They also touched upon pressing international issues, in particular the situation in Libya and upcoming multilateral contacts on assisting Libyan sides in the settlement," the foreign ministry said.
Libya is split after popular uprisings in February 2011 led to war that resulted in the overthrow and death of Muammar Gaddafi. There are two centers of power in the country engulfed by a prolonged military conflict - the internationally recognized government in Tobruk and General National Congress based in Tripoli.
The situation in Libya remains tense. Several regions, including in the north of the country, are controlled by the Islamic State (IS) terrorist organization banned in Russia.
