Russia's permanent mission to the United Nations has revealed that discussions on Libya will be present during Moscow's presidency of the UN Security Council next April.

Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov will chair an open discussion of the UN Security Council on the Middle East on April 25, as the talks will include the situation in Libya, Yemen and Syria, according to an interview with Russia's Permanent Representative to the United Nations Vasily Nebenzya with the Russian TASS agency on Friday.

“Terrorism in the Sahel assumed an avalanche character after the brazen military intervention in Libya by Western states that destabilized the entire region. This had implications even for coastal states of West Africa”, Nebenzya said during the Security Council session last Tuesday.
