The West has no right to kill Gaddafi - Putin
Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin has lashed out at the West over attempts to do away with Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi.
Addressing reporters in Copenhagen after talks with his Danish counterpart Lars Løkke Rasmussen on Tuesday, the Russian premier said that despite earlier assurances by Western nations that they did not want to kill Gaddafi, they are now saying “yes, we trying to kill him”. “Who took on the right to execute this man? Has there been any trial?” he wondered.
Mr. Putin condemned the bombings of the presidential residence in Tripoli, saying that they went far beyond the “no-fly zone” resolution passed by the UN Security Council in March. He feels that Libya’s rich oil deposits are the real reason behind active foreign interference in Libyan affairs.
