22nd July 2011, Comments 0 comments

The top Russian and Libyan diplomats discussed at a meeting in Moscow this week the exit of Moamer Kadhafi, the Interfax news agency quoted a Russian foreign ministry source as saying on Friday.

"The topic of Moamer Kadhafi's departure from power was discussed at this meeting and discussed in fairly concrete terms, including in the light of contacts that took place between Tripoli's representatives and Americans and the French," the source was quoted as saying.

Foreign Minister Abdelati Al-Obeidi, the highest-ranking Kadhafi official to visit Moscow since the conflict with the rebels erupted, held one hour of talks with Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov in Moscow on Wednesday.

The meeting came days after US envoys held a rare meeting with representatives of Kadhafi's regime, urging the Libyan strongman to cede power.
