Russia has no plans to carry out air strikes in Libya, a stronghold of extremist militants, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said Friday.

 

“This is not in our plans. We have had no requests of this kind from the government of Libya … and there is no government of Libya as such,” Lavrov told a news conference during a visit to Italy.

 

Lavrov also said Russia sees a U.S.-led coalition hitting ISIS militants in Syria as a potentially effective partner in the Arab republic.
