THE UNITED NATIONS, July 10 (Itar-Tass) - Russia asked the U.N. Security Council sanctions committee to examine the situation over possible supplies of the weapons from Libya to Syria in violation of the current embargo, Russian Permanent Representative in the United Nations Organization Vitaly Churkin told Itar-Tass on Tuesday.
“We hope that the relevant letters will be sent to the countries, which are mentioned as sources of supplies of these Libyan weapons,” the diplomat said.
A source in the U.N. head office explained to Itar-Tass that the addresses are prepared and will be sent, if other U.N. Security Council member-countries do not make any objections before the end of the week.
In particular, the New York Times newspaper has made public at the end of June the information over the supplies of firearms, grenade launchers and anti-tank weapons to Syria. On the basis of an interview with the Syrian rebels, smugglers and the officials of several countries, the newspaper came to conclusion that active efforts are being taken with Qatar’s financial support to provide the militants of the Syrian opposition with the weapons from Libya.
Meanwhile, the newspaper claims that the weapons in Syria are delivered not only by sea, but also by air - warplanes of Qatar, which deliver it to the network of intelligence agencies and the leaders of the Syrian opposition in Turkey.
Spokesman of the Russian Foreign Ministry Alexander Lukashevich told a press briefing on July 5 that if these facts are confirmed “this is a blatant violation of the embargo under U.N. Security Council Resolution on Libya 1970” imposed in 2011.
