Russia's Foreign Ministry announced on Tuesday, that LNA leader Khalifa Haftar left Moscow after hours of negotiations brokered by Russia and Turkey without signing an agreement aimed at formalising a tentative ceasefire with the GNA in the war-wracked country.

The agreement has already been signed by head of the United Nations-recognised GNA Fayez al-Sarraj.
