Medvedev Warns of Libyan Collapse, Will Align Stance With China

Russian President Dmitry Medvedev warned that Libya is at risk of total collapse and that his government will consult with China at a summit of emerging-market nations this week on how to respond.

“NATO isn’t in control of the country because they don’t have a mandate to carry out large-scale operations,” Medvedev said in an interview with Chinese state television channel CCTV, according to a transcript posted on the Kremlin website today. “In order to restore order, we have to act in strict accordance with existing international resolutions.”
