In Congo, Lavrov takes aim at 'West', backs Libya talks

Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov took aim Tuesday at the West and its supposed "objectives" in Ukraine and Libya during a visit to Congo as part of his Africa tour.
   He also told reporters he supports talks to reconcile warring parties in
   "We support the initiative of (Republic of Congo) President Denis Sassou
Nguesso which aims to organize an inter-Libyan conference," he said, following
a meeting with Sassou who also chairs a high-level committee on Libya in the
African Union.
   Libya is divided between a UN-recognized government based in Tripoli led by
Abdelhamid Dbeibah and a rival administration in the country's east backed by
military strongman Khalifa Haftar, with whom Moscow maintains close relations.
