On Nov. 7, the chief commander of the so-called Libyan National Army (LNA), Khalifa Hifter [Haftar], who also represents the government in Tobruk, visited Moscow for a meeting with Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu.
The two discussed the present situation in Libya, the fight against terrorism and broader security in the Middle East and North Africa.
Hifter also met with Valery Gerasimov, head of the general staff of the Russian army.
This may indicate Moscow and Tobruk have either concluded certain agreements in the field of military cooperation or are discussing them.
