13th June 2011, Comments 0 comments

The special envoy of Russian President Dmitry Medvedev said Monday he would visit Tripoli next week to hold talks on the Libya conflict.

"Currently we are finishing talks alongside the Russian foreign ministry on the security of my trip to Tripoli," Mikhail Margelov told the RIA Novosti news agency.

"My trip will take place next week, on the order of the president."

Margelov last week met the opposition in their Benghazi stronghold, as Russia positions itself as a possible mediator in the conflict. However it is not clear if he would meet with Libyan leader Moamer Kadhafi in Tripoli.
