Russia, Germany worried by civilan deaths in Libya

Russia and Germany are against what they call an indiscriminate use of military force against civilian population.

This is the bottom line of the discussion Russia’s deputy foreign minister Alexander Saltanov had in Moscow on Wednesday with  the German Foreign Ministry’s political director Emily Haber.

“We need to stick to the provisions of Security Council Resolution 1973, which provides for a no-fly zone over Libya exclusively for protecting civilian lives,” Saltanov said.

Haber agreed, saying Moscow and Berlin were looking almost eye to eye on the ongoing western military operation in Libya.
