"We are against some our partners' line, but they, in particular the Europeans, have already been openly discussing this, I heard there are such discussions in Britain that it is not worth waiting for all Libyan sides to join the Skhirat accords, that there is a [Fayez] Sarraj government and this government should invite foreign assistants as military advisers, special forces soldiers and in general armed contingents in order to help the fight against terrorism," Lavrov said after talks with African Union Commission chairwoman Nkosazana Dlamini-Zuma.
Any foreign involvement in Libya's internal affairs can only be possible and legitimate in the event of consensus between all countries' political forces and with the approval of the UN Security Council, Lavrov added.
The instability triggered the rise of numerous Islamic militant and terrorist groups, particularly Daesh, outlawed in Russia, which has been carrying out attacks on Libyan oil and other infrastructure.
In December 2015, the sides struck a UN-brokered accord in the Moroccan city of Skhirat to form a national unity government. Fayez Sarraj currently heads Libya's Government of National Accord.
Earlier in April, the UK media reported that London was allegedly set to deploy up to 1,000 troops to help Libya fight the jihadist threat.
