Russia, China warn not to use force against Libya

Russia and China have warned against the use of force in international affairs, expressing regret over the West coalition’s military action against Libya.

On Sunday, Chinese Foreign Ministry Spokesman Zyang Yui urged the UN Security Council to stick to the UN Charter and take steps in line with Libya’s sovereignty and territorial integrity.

He was echoed by Russian counterpart Alexander Lukashevich who called for an immediate halt of the bloodshed and the beginning of peace talks in Libya.

The two men also admonished for escalating the Libyan conflict, which they said is fraught with further loss of human life in the political unrest-hit North African country.
