MOSCOW (Sputnik) — Russia is thinking of holding intra-Libyan talks, which could eventually take place in Moscow or Grozny, the capital city of Russia's republic of Chechnya, Lev Dengov, the head of the Russian contact group on intra-Libyan settlement, said on Thursday.

"There are such plans. We are now actively negotiating with the Libyans. Several delegations from Libya have already visited Moscow and said they were ready to return to Moscow or Grozny," Dengov, who also serves as an aide to the Chechnya head, told the Kommersant newspaper, adding that he could not yet tell when exactly the talks would take place.

Earlier in the day, the Russian Foreign Ministry said that Moscow supported the intra-Libyan dialogue and was ready to contribute to advancing political process in the country.

Libya has been in a state of civil war since its longtime leader Muammar Gaddafi was overthrown in 2011. The UN-backed Government of National Accord operates in the country's west and is headquartered in Tripoli. The eastern part of the country is governed by its parliament, with headquarters in the city of Tobruk. The parliament is backed by the Libyan National Army headed by Khalifa Haftar.
