In a telephone conversation, Russian President Vladimir Putin and German Chancellor Angela Merkel agreed, on Sunday, that the diplomatic efforts to solve the Libyan crisis should be strengthened.
The Kremlin, in a statement issued after the call, which he said was carried out on the initiative of the German side, stated that the two parties exchanged views on the latest developments in Libya.
Putin and Merkel stressed, "The feasibility of intensifying diplomatic political efforts to settle the crisis there, including mediated by Germany and the United Nations."
Germany is preparing to host an international conference in Berlin in early January, with the participation of the Russian President, to discuss ways to find a solution to the ongoing conflict in Libya.
The Russian-German call comes after the Turkish intervention in Libya, which raised fears that Ankara's ambitions in the region would exacerbate the threat of terrorism and slip into more chaos.
The Libyan national army is fighting a war against terrorist organizations, while Turkey provides generous support to the Tripoli militias, which operate under the banner of the Fayez al-Sarraj government.
Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said earlier that his country would send troops to Libya in response to a request from Tripoli soon, possibly next month.
