Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov met on Thursday with EU High Representative for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy Federica Mogherini on the sidelines of the OSCE Ministerial Council, reaching an agreement to cooperate on a political settlement in Libya, said a statement of the European External Action Service circulated in Brussels.
"The High Representative and the Russian Foreign Minister discussed also the global threat posed by Da'esh and the urgency of international and regional cooperation also on the Libyan crisis, with a particular view to reach an internal agreement on a Government of National Accord," it said.
"Federica Mogherini underlined the importance of gathering all relevant regional and international actors to support the need of an agreement and UN-defined roadmap. In this respect, the conference that will take place in Rome on 13 December will be a great chance to show real international and regional commitment for a political solution," it added.
