MOSCOW - Representatives of Muammar Gaddafi's government were expected in Moscow on Tuesday and Russia also hoped to host Libyan rebel envoys soon, Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said on Monday.
"We agreed meetings in Moscow with representatives of both Tripoli and Benghazi. Envoys from Tripoli will be here tomorrow. Envoys from Benghazi were supposed to be here on Wednesday, but as they informed us, they were forced to ask us to postpone this visit for technical reasons," Lavrov was quoted by the Itar-Tass news agency as saying.
"We hope it will take place in the foreseeable future," Lavrov said, casting Russia as a potential peacemaker.
