17th May 2011, Comments 0 comments

Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said he held talks Tuesday with envoys of Libyan leader Moamer Kadhafi, telling Tripoli to obey the terms of the UN resolution on Libya.

"We raised the issues that directly come out of our principal position aimed first and foremost at urgently ending bloodletting in Libya," Lavrov said in televised remarks.

"We raised an issue about the need for the Libyan leadership to explicitly embrace and begin the implementation of the UN Security Council resolutions in full."

Moscow, which has been strongly critical of the international campaign against Kadhafi's regime, had agreed to talk to both Kadhafi's envoys and rebels who had also planned to come to Moscow but had to delay their trip.
