WASHINGTON, March 8 (Itar-Tass) – Libyan authorities deny the presence of a special center for training Syrian insurgents on the territory of their country, a high-ranking representative of the U.S. Department of State told a news briefing Thursday answering a question from Itar-Tass.
He held the briefing upon the results of talks that Secretary of State Hillary Clinton had held with Libya’s Interim Prime Minister Abdel-Rahim al-Keeb.
When the representative was asked on whether or not the U.S. has information or the actual existence of a center of this kind and how it would possibly react to such accusations, he said he could refer to what Al-Keeb had told reporters after the talks with Clinton.
The Libyan Prime Minister vehemently denied the existence of any camp that might be training the insurgents.
The U.S. diplomat declined to make any further comments on the situation.
Russia’s ambassador to the UN, Vitaly Churkin, told a meeting of the Security Council Wednesday international law makes it totally impossible to permit the existence of a center in Libya that trains the so-called Syrian revolutionaries who are then dispatched to Syria for conducting combat actions against the legitimate government of that country.
Activity of this kind undermines the efforts towards ensuring stability in the Middle East, Churkin said.
