President of the High Council of State arrived Sunday in the Russian capital of Moscow for talks with senior Russian officials.

The media office of HCS said Khaled Al-Mishri’s visit will last for days and he will meet top Russian officials to discuss the two countries’ relations and ways of resolving the ongoing political crisis in Libya.

Russia is a key backer of warlord Khalifa Haftar, a staunch opponent of Khaled Al-Mishri and the UN-backed Presidential Council.
