Russia, NATO still at odds over Libya: foreign minister

4th July 2011, Comments 0 comments

Russia and NATO are still at odds over the Western air campaign in Libya, Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said Monday after talks with the head of the Alliance, Anders Fogh Rasmussen.

"So far there is no common understanding over how the resolution is being implemented," Lavrov said, referring to the UN Security Council resolution that paved the way for the air campaign.

Russia abstained in the resolution vote at the Security Council but has since expressed growing anger over the duration and intensity of the NATO-led air strikes against targets of Moamer Kadhafi's Libyan regime.
