MOSCOW, March 7 (Itar-Tass) — Head of the Russian Federal Agency for CIS Affairs, Compatriots Living Abroad and International Humanitarian Cooperation Konstantin Kosachev said the latest events in Libya proved the lack of consensus.
“The latest events in Libya prove that there is no consensus in the society and that such events can lead to the collapse of the country,” Kosachev told journalists on Wednesday.
Commenting on reports saying tribal chiefs declared Libya’s eastern oil-rich region of Cyrenaica as autonomous, Kosachev said, “This is not the latest decision. The autonomy is created within the framework of the Libyan Constitution.”
At the same time, he said, “All these events can lead to further disintegration of Libya.” The situation in Libya is linked to the West’s mistakable policy when it allowed the use of force in the country. “The current of events was violated and the fate of Libya was destructed,” Kosachev said.
