UNITED NATIONS, March 8 (Itar-Tass) —— Russia’s permanent representative at the United Nations, Vitaly Churkin, has strongly criticized the presence in Libya’s territory of a special center training so-called “Syrian revolutionaries”, who are being sent to Syria to fight the country’s legitimate government. Speaking on the situation in Syria at a meeting of the UN Security Council the Russian diplomat said that such activity undermined the efforts to maintain stability in the region of the Middle East.
“Bearing in mind the presence of Al-Qaeda in Syrian territory one cannot but ask if the export of revolution might turn into export of terrorism,” Churkin said.
The Russian ambassador recalled that “Colonel Gaddafi was very active in that sense.”
“Probably, the Libyan authorities should focus on addressing the problems of their own country?” the Russian diplomat asked the Prime Minister of Libya’s Transitional National Council, Abdel Raheem al-Keeb, present at the Security Council’s session.
