MOSCOW, September 1 (Itar-Tass) — Russia has recognized the National Transitional Council (NTC) of Libya as current authority, said a Foreign Ministry statement circulated on Thursday.
"Russia takes note of the NTC-proclaimed reform programme which envisages the working out of a new Constitution, the holding of general elections and the formation of (new) government. Our country established diplomatic relations with Libya on September 4, 1955. It has been maintaining them ever since and has never interrupted them irrespective of which government was in power in Tripoli," the statement pointed out.
A Russian Foreign Ministry official added, "We proceed from the assumption that the treaties, concluded earlier by the Russian Federation and Libya, and other mutual obligations of the Parties remain in effect in relations between the two States and will be implemented in good faith."
