MOSCOW, February 3. /TASS/. Libyan Prime Minister Fayez al-Sarraj is planning to visit Moscow in February, Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova said on Friday.

Zakharova said Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov had previously met with al-Sarraj in September 2016.

"In February we are planning to receive him in Moscow," she said.

The diplomat stressed that Russia sees no alternative to the political settlement of the Libyan crisis. "In accordance with this approach, we are systematically working with both centers of power in Libya - with Tripoli and their opponents in Tobruk," she explained.

"We try to push them towards overcoming domestic differences and searching for compromise solutions to all controversial issues," Zakharova said.

Russia stressed the importance of establishing dialogue at talks with President of Libya's House of Representatives in Tobruk Aguila Saleh and Libyan National Army Commander Khalifa Haftar during their visits to Moscow in November-December last year, she added.
