Western countries behaved meanly towards Libya by violating the UN Security Council resolution on introduction of a no-fly zone over the country’s territory, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said at the first Global Young Diplomats Forum held as part of the World Forum of Youth and Students, when asked by the audience, according to TASS.
“The UN Security Council resolution was most seriously violated and crushed,” he noted. “This is about dealmaking skills of our partners, who just behaved meanly and dishonestly.”
“Aviation of Libyan Arab Jamahiriya’s Air Forces did not have to get off the ground, and it did not,” Lavrov said. “The Security Council ordered that all necessary measures could be taken to provide a no-fly zone regime.” This meant that “force could be used only in case a plane violated the no-fly zone regime.”
“Instead of this, our counterparts from the North Atlantic Alliance deployed their air forces and bombed Gaddafi’s army, helped rebels, among whom there were a lot of terrorists, and liquidated the Libyan revolution’s leader,” the minister concluded.
