The Russian Federation has stated numerous times that it respects all the international agreements and limitations concerning Libya and has not considered the possibility of lifting the arms embargo imposed on Libya, said Lev Dengov, the head of the Russian contact team on Libya in an interview with Agenzia Nova.
"It would be wrong to say there are any actions taken to remove the embargo. So far, there is no need for it. It’s premature to remove the arms embargo against Libya as long as there is no centralized power, no consensus on who should lead and control the Libyan forces," Dengov said.
Dengov added that any deliveries will inevitably lead to an escalation of the conflict and "so far it should be prevented under any circumstances."
In July, Libyan Prime Minister Fayez Sarraj told Sputnik that the Libyan Government of National Accord hoped Russia would contribute to lifting the arms embargo so that the country could more effectively fight terrorist groups operating within its borders.
