BERLIN, June 23. /TASS/. The situation in Libya is moving in the right direction and there is a chance to achieve stability. The reduction of armed presence must be well-considered, Russia's Deputy Foreign Minister Sergey Vershinin told the media after the second Berlin conference on Libya.
"We believe that the situation is moving in the right direction by and large," he said. "All decisions that are being made at the level of the international community, including the UN Security Council and by the Libyans themselves contribute to this."
Armed presence in Libya must be scaled down and this must be done in a well-considered way, Vershinin stressed.
"We believe that the situation is relatively stable, both in the eastern and western parts of the country," he added. Also, he stressed the importance of Libya's presidential and parliamentary elections due on December 24, 2021.
