    SOCHI (Sputnik) - Libya will sign an agreement of intent with Russia, at the Russia-Africa Summit in Sochi, on the supply of Russian wheat in the amount of 1 million tonnes annually, head of the Russian contact group on intra-Libyan settlement Lev Dengov said Wednesday.

    "The planned estimated volume of Russian wheat supplies to Libya is one million tonnes annually", Dengov said.

    The official also noted that Moscow has been working for a long time with the Libyan national oil corporation, carrying out joint projects in order to help the war-torn country to restore its economy.

    The statement comes amid the Russia-Africa summit and business forum, which kicked off on Wednesday. Over 40 African nations are represented at the event by heads of state or government, while 11 have sent their vice presidents, foreign ministers or envoys.
