Libyan National Army General Khalifa Haftar has left Moscow without signing a ceasefire agreement to end nine months of fighting in the country, the Russian foreign ministry confirmed to AFP Tuesday.


Russia will continue pushing for a ceasefire agreement in Libya, Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said on Tuesday, after Haftar left the talks.


“We will pursue our efforts in this direction. For now, a definitive result has not been achieved,” Lavrov said at a press conference in Colombo.


General Haftar on Monday evening asked until Tuesday morning to look over the agreement already signed by the head of UN-recognized government Fayez al-Sarraj, but left the Russian capital without signing, Russia's foreign ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova said.
