Dmitry Medvedev: Libyan conflict resolution is impossible without mutual compromise


Administration of the Russian President

All parties involved in the Libyan conflict must agree to a compromise, the head of the Russian government Dmitry Medvedev said at a conference on Libya which takes place in the Italian Palermo. In his opinion, an agreement can not be achieved and all decisions will eventually collapse without compromising, TASS reports.

The Russian Prime Minister assures that progress in the Libyan settlement is quite possible. It should be built on the basis of shirat agreements and a roadmap. Dmitry Medvedev recalls that Moscow has consistently insisted that the settlement should continue with strict adherence to the decisions of the UN Security Council.

The difficulties appear because of mutual distrust of the sides. Medvedev noted that the goals set at the previous conference on Libya, held in the spring, are hardly achievable. “But in any case, we need to move forward, we need to establish new deadlines, new control points in order to get out of the impasses that have emerged,” he stresses. Every effort must be made to ensure that the people of Libya live in peace, and the tragic experience of this country would not be repeated in other states, he adds.

The Prime Minister is convinced that the dramatic events of 2011 which occurred at the suggestion of the countries of Europe, the United States and some other states, led to an extremely difficult situation. These processes were associated with a flagrant violation of the UN resolutions on the events in Libya.

The negotiations are progressing slowly, Russia participates in it since it is important for stability not only in the region, but also in the world. Today, many problems come straight from Libya: drug trafficking, extremism, radical ideology. But it mostly depends on the Libyan citizens themselves, on the political forces that are represented at the current conference.
