He said that the “rebel Haftarah” escaped from Moscow after refusing to sign a peace Treaty with the head of the national consensus government (NTC) by Faiz by Sarraj.
Earlier, on 14 January it became known that the Haftarot left Moscow without a signed written agreement with Sarraj ceasefire in Libya. It was noted that on the background of the departure of field Marshal in the Libyan capital Tripoli resumed armed clashes.
Negotiations between the Haftarot and Sarraj was planned on 13 January in Moscow, but in the end they broke down. The reason for this was the failure of the forces of the LNA to leave Tripoli.
