Russia Supports Lifting Arms Embargo when Unity Govt Formed

Russia would support a lifting of the UN Security Council’s arms embargo against Libya once the a national unity government begins operating.

The Russian Ambassador to Libya, Ivan Molotkov (pictured), told RIA Novosti:

“Once the government begins working and when the overall national structures are formed, including its military, then we’ll be ready to support the issue in the UN Security Council of lifting the arms embargo, renew the deliveries of military equipment, and provide the country with other aid in countering the Islamic State and those structures affiliated with it.

"The most important thing is that the government announces its existence as soon as possible.”
