Russia favors an authority in Libya who would combat terrorism, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said Tuesday.

MOSCOW (Sputnik) — Russia would like to see an authority in Libya who would combat terrorism, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said Tuesday.

"You know that certain contacts are taking place. Russia is of course interested in Libya stabilizing in one way or another, deciding on its authorities and being able to take vigorous measures to ensure that Libyan territory does not become a breeding ground for the terrorist plankton," Peskov told reporters.

The situation with authorities in Libya remains "rather controversial and difficult," Peskov said, when asked whether the contacts in December with eastern military commander Khalifa Haftar meant that "Russia was betting on him in the issue of resolution of the situation in Libya."

"Certainly, excessive intervention by Russia in Libyan affairs is hardly possible and is hardly advisable. but nevertheless, this does not mean that Russia does not contact those with whom it considers it necessary," Peskov stressed.
