MOSCOW, February 11. /ITAR-TASS/. Implementation of Russian-Libyan projects will depend on Libya’s ability to ensure security of Russian specialists, Russian ambassador in Tripoli Ivan Molotkov said in an interview with Itar-Tass on Tuesday.“The situation in that country remains tense,” he said. “Any work there is coupled with serious risks for foreign diplomats and specialists, what recent incidents with staff of the Korean and Egyptian embassies and Italian engineers have demonstrated.”
“Such realities of today’s Libya demand from us maximum composure, discipline and observance of known restrictions for movement across the city and so on,” Molotkov said, adding that Russian diplomats who recently returned to Tripoli after the attack on their diplomatic mission last October showed their business-like mood. “Diplomats’ mood is normal, business-like.”
Speaking of Russian-Libyan military-technical and oil and gas cooperation, Molotkov said the two countries had big prospects.
