MOSCOW, (SANA) – Russian former Prime Minister, politician and academic Yevgeny Primakov, affirmed that Russia will not allow the Libyan scenario to be repeated in Syria through Security Council.
In a seminar held in Moscow on Friday, Primakov said that the mechanism used by the NATO in Libya was a very grave precedent, as it used a vague Security Council resolution to legitimize military intervention and support one side in a war in an independent country.

“I don’t believe that Russia and China – who didn’t oppose the Security Council decision on Libya – will permit being lied to again,” he said, voicing believe that the decision-makers in Russia’s foreign policy will take that into consideration.
Primakov added that what happened in the region started as a movement against ruler who were relied upon by the United States and Europe, but the west exploited the events to wage a campaign to take out Arab countries it doesn’t like.
