The Libyan opposition said Tuesday that they had not designated any envoy so far to visit Russia, reiterating that no ceacefire would be discussed with Gaddafi's government.

Abdel-hafed Ghoga, spokesman of the opposition "National Transitional Council" told Xinhua that no one had been designated envoy and sent to Moscow. "If someone from the opposition visits Russia, it's only a personal visit, not representing the opposition," Ghoga said.

Ghoga's words came as Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov earlier on Tuesday met with Libya's government envoy, Mohammad Ahmed al-Sharif, discussing a possible ceasefire under the UN Security Council Resolution 1973.

However, Ghoga added that no ceasefire proposal would be discussed if the opposition's envoy visited Moscow.

Lavrov said on Monday that envoys from the Libyan opposition stronghold Benghazi were supposed to arrive in Moscow on Wednesday, but the visit were postponed by "technical reasons".
