Russia Concerned About Breaches of Arms Embargo in Libya - Nebenzia

UNITED NATIONS (UrduPoint News / Sputnik - 27th March, 2020) Russia is concerned by violations of the arms embargo in Libya that destabilize the situation not only in the country but the entire Sahel region in Africa, Russian Permanent Representative to the United Nations Vassily Nebenzia said in a Security Council meeting held via video conferencing.

"We are concerned by reported violations of the arms embargo and stress that external stakeholders must stop fueling the conflict," Nebenzia said on Thursday. "Illegal arms traffic in Libya destabilizes the situation both in the country and in the Sahara-Sahel region.
