Lavrov: A large number of Syrian mercenaries go to Libya

Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said on Tuesday that a large number of militants in Idlib in Syria went to Libya, stressing that these steps are a violation of international resolutions.

This came at a press conference of the Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov with the Minister of Foreign Affairs of South Sudan, where he said: "A large number of armed men are traveling to Libya, contrary to Security Council resolutions, to interfere in Libyan internal affairs, and on this basis we have contacted the Turkish Foreign Minister in this regard.

Lavrov's comments come a week after the Berlin meeting with the participation of the major powers, Arab countries and in the presence of Turkey, which supports the reconciliation government, where it was agreed to push for a permanent cease-fire in Libya, and the commitment to arms embargo, during a summit hosted in Berlin.

The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said: More than 3,600 mercenaries have been sent by Turkey to Libya recently.

The Libyan National Army spokesman, Ahmed Al-Mismari, confirmed at a press conference on Sunday that Turkey continues to transfer terrorists from Syria to fight in Libya, and in an accelerated manner.
