The Commander of the Libyan Armed Forces, Marshal Khalifa Haftar, received on Friday the United Kingdom's ambassador to Libya, Frank Baker, after returning from a visit to Russia where he met senior Russian officials.

A statement issued by the Information Office for the Armed Forces General Command said that Marshal Haftar received the UK ambassador to Libya and his accompanying delegation to discuss developments in the local and international arena and the bilateral relations between Libya and Britain.

This comes after a meeting with Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shogui, which reviewed "ways to resolve the crisis in Libya and security issues in the Middle East," Russian media reported.

Earlier on Friday, media sources in Rome reported that the Italian government had received final assurances of the participation of Marshal Khalifa Haftar in the Palermo conference on Libya, which starts early next Monday in Sicily.
