MOSCOW, July 5 (Itar-Tass) - Moscow will file a petition with the UN Security Council for investigating encroachments on the embargo on weaponry supplies to Libya and out of it, Alexander Lukashevich, an official spokesman for the Russian Foreign Ministry said Friday.
“Quite naturally, the problem has aggravated recently, especially if you put it into the context of decisions that some of our Western and regional partners have taken,” he said.
“I hope you know some publications in the Western media prompted to think that intervention on the part of the UN Security Council’s committee on sanctions might really be needed,” Lukashevich said. “If the facts are confirmed then the case in hand is a crude encroachment on the embargo introduced by an appropriate resolution of the Security Council.
“That’s why our ambassador to the UN has been told to file an appropriate petition with the committee on the basis of the open publications that unveiled a whole array of problems around noncompliance with the embargo on the supplies of weaponry to Libya and out of it,” Lukashevich said.
“I think not only Russia will propose this scrutiny because a number of our partners have been voiced concerns over the situation, too,” he said.
