The exact date of the visit by the Foreign Minister for Libya’s Government of National Accord, Mohamed Taher Siala, to Moscow depends on the situation around Tripoli and has not been set yet, a diplomatic source informed the TASS Russian news agency on Friday.

"We are waiting for him, but the exact date depends on him and on the situation in the country," the source said.

Russian Presidential Envoy for the Middle East and Africa and Deputy Foreign Minister Mikhail Bogdanov earlier said that Siala could visit Moscow soon.

Since April 4, fighting between the army forces led by Marshal Khalifa Haftar and the forces of the Presidential Council have continued on the outskirts of the capital Tripoli, leaving hundreds dead and wounded and thousands displaced from their homes.
