Putin urges EU not to interfere in Libya’s “Internal Affairs”


Russian President Vladimir Putin said Thursday that while the European Union must be concerned about what is happening in Libya, it must not interfere in the internal affairs of the country.

Putin spoke at a news conference following talks between the Russian government and the EU Commission in Brussels.

‘We must let people build their own destiny and not interfere in their internal political process,’ he said.

‘Belgium has not had any government for over 250 days but no foreign power can change the course of things in this country,’ Putin said.

The Russian President expressed concern about the situation in Libya, ‘especially the fact that it could have an influence in the north Caucasus’.

He warned that the price of oil would exceed US$200 a barrel in the following days because of the events in Libya.
