The foreign Ministry believe the approach for a UN arms embargo on Libya biased

Moscow considers the biased approach of the UN experts in monitoring the arms embargo against Libya, the question of independent monitoring is not, said in an interview with RIA Novosti Director of the Department of international organizations Ministry of foreign Affairs of Russia Pyotr Ilyich.

The diplomat recalled that when the sanctions Committee of the UN security Council 1970 on Libya has had a team of experts and is empowered to carry out, inter alia, the monitoring of violations of the arms embargo.

"With such a biased approach, it is difficult to speak about independent monitoring of compliance with the arms embargo", he added.

After the overthrow and murder of Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi in 2011, Libya has virtually ceased to function as a unified state. Now the country is in a diarchy. To the East sits a Parliament elected by people, and in the West, in the capital Tripoli, the rules generated with the support of the UN and the European Union, the Government of national consent headed by Fitom Barragem. The authorities of the Eastern part of the country operate independently from Tripoli to cooperate with the Libyan national army, led by Marshal Khalifa the Haftarot, which is April 2019 not stop trying to seize Tripoli.
