World does not see Kadhafi as Libyan leader: Medvedev

27th May 2011, Comments 0 comments

The world no longer regards Moamer Kadhafi as Libya's legitimate leader, President Dmitry Medvedev said Friday, throwing Russia's weight behind calls for the strongman to step down.

"The world community does not see him as the Libyan leader," Medvedev told reporters after the G8 summit, adding that if Kadhafi were to go into exile "it would be useful for the country and the Libyan people."

He added, however: "We will not take him."
