According to the source, Saleh will travel to Moscow after a meeting in Cairo with Egyptian President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi, which will take place on Saturday.

At the end of April the head of the Libyan Parliament has put forward a new initiative for a political settlement in the country. He proposed a roadmap consisting of several paragraphs. According to his proposal, each of the three regions (three historic regions of Libya: Tripolitania, Cyrenaica and Fezzan) choose who will represent them in the Presidential Council, which will consist of the Chairman of the Council and his two deputies. Saleh asked the UN Secretary General to support their proposals.

After the overthrow and murder of Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi in 2011, Libya has virtually ceased to function as a unified state. Now the country is in a diarchy. To the East sits a Parliament elected by people, and in the West, in the capital Tripoli, the rules generated with the support of the UN and the European Union of the NTC headed by Fitom Barragem. The authorities of the Eastern part of the country operate independently from Tripoli to cooperate with the Libyan national army, Marshal Khalifa the Haftarot.
