Russia agrees at G8 summit to mediate in Libya

 RFI France.

Russia is ready to mediate in the Libyan crisis following a request from US President Barack Obama and French President Nicolas Sarkozy at the G8 summit in Deauville, northern France, on Friday.

“If the respectful tone that Russia maintains in its dialogue with the Libyan authorities would help Mr [Moamer] Kadhafi take the right decision, I think this will become our serious and significant contribution to the resolution of the grave and potentially even more dangerous situation for Libya and the region,” Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Sergei Ryabkov said in Deauville.
