Libya marks beginning of a dangerous new trend – Russian foreign minister

Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov told RT that the Libya situation has given rise to the possibility of a dangerous new trend.

­He warned that opposition groups across the region may believe the West will get involved and take sides in domestic conflicts, which should instead be resolved by national governments

“The Libya case has created a temptation for many opposition groups in the region to spark similar situations, in the expectation that the West won't stay out and will intervene in a conflict, taking one side,” Lavrov warned. “It's a very alarming prospect, and I hope this won't happen. It's crucial that governments should solve their problems independently.”
