Russia's foreign minister asked all parties in Libya to reach a ceasefire and start political dialogue.
Speaking at a news conference in Moscow, Lavrov said no conditions must precede the cessation of hostilities.
"I believe that a ceasefire is the main condition for starting a political dialogue. Moreover, such a ceasefire must occur without any prior requirements. It is in the interests of the Libyan people to end the fighting, declare an indefinite ceasefire and start a dialogue aimed at working out such agreements that will be implemented," he said.
He said agreements that "were offered from outside,” including at conferences in France, Italy and the United Arab Emirates, did not work.
