Baku-APA. Russia and Saudi Arabia on Thursday warned against outside political or military intervention in Libya, saying such actions could only make the situation worse, Russia’s Foreign Ministry said, APA reports quoting RIA Novosti.
Earlier in the day, Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Alexander Saltanov, who is also presidential envoy on the Middle East, and Ali ben Hasan Jaafar, the Saudi ambassador to Moscow, discussed the situation in the Middle East.
The unrest in Libya began on February 15, following the ouster of authoritarian regimes in Tunisia and Egypt. Libyans are demanding an end to Muammar Gaddafi’s 42-year rule.
