ST. PETERSBURG, June 17. /TASS/. Russia will work constructively with the world community on a settlement in Libya, Russian President Vladimir Putin told a news conference following Russian-Italian talks.
"I told the Italian prime minster that Russia would be working very constructively together with the entire international community proceeding from the interests of the Libyan people. It will by no means bring about any dissonance in this joint work, but seek a solution that will be acceptable to all," Putin said.
Putin said the situation in that country was very difficult. "The government, the parliament, armed groups, tribal interests, economic, ethnic and other aspects… It is rather difficult to reduce all this to a common denominator," he added.
