Russia will not participate in negotiations on the fate of Gaddafi

Russia is not taking part in the negotiations over the conditions for the possible resignation of Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi and providing him with any security guarantees, said Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov.


"We do not take part in negotiations for any immunity, guarantees. This is not part of our efforts," he said in an interview with Bloomberg. The Minister stressed that this question should be asked to the Libyan people, the coalition and the African Union.

He clarified that Russia is also irrelevant to the discussion of the country to which Gaddafi may go, and guarantees against international criminal prosecution. “Russia does not discuss this. We are not discussing any details of the guarantees that can be offered to it,” the Russian minister said.

He recalled that at the summit in Deauville Russia was asked to mediate in certain aspects of the Libyan situation. “It was not our initiative. It was a request, an appeal from President Sarkozy, President Obama, and other participants (the G8 summit),” Lavrov said.

At the same time, he stressed that even before that Russia had not stood aside, reports Interfax. “Over the past few weeks, we have actively supported the efforts of the African Union, the special envoy of the UN Secretary General, Mr. Khattyb. To support these efforts, we spoke with various parties,” he said.

    Yes, Mr. Lavrov, nobody has been asking you anything for a long time. The world community in fact refers to Russia as well as to Libya, simply not perceiving its words. With such a foreign policy, we caught up with Honduras or Papua New Guinea! In short, with the Papuans!

      I do not agree. The Minister of Foreign Affairs needs to articulate the country's position specifically and clearly with words and facial expressions, which I like Lavrov ... but another thing is that he doesn’t solve everything, but he feels that he has a very good team of assistants and the tasks that he has to solve he does excellently, as Gromyko did under the USSR, and he is not in the same conditions as Molotov was

    But do we need Libya ??? we are constantly trying to drag into other people's problems. We have other problems and tasks, and in foreign policy we will limit ourselves only to the CIS

    Another signal to fans of "multi-vector", you want to be friends with everyone at once, no one does not mind. You want to keep your money in Western banks, and Russia, for your money, built something for you, but please. You want to make a promising aircraft with us, but buy the main fleet in Europe, but as many as you like. But then do not be offended if your multi-vector approach comes to you sideways.
