Russia and China blocked the United Nations release of a report on Libya. The report accuses Russia of violating international rules by providing arms support to the faction led by Commander Khalifa Hiftar in Libya.


The report accused Russia of violating arms embargo rules

China exercised its exclusive rights to join Russia to prevent the report from being released. This report has been prepared by Germany, which is chairing the United Nations committee to monitor sanctions on Libya. Germany's Deputy Ambassador to the United Nations, Günter Sötter, said that he had taken up the issue with the Security Council against a ban on the release of the report.


Many delegations have asked to release this report prepared by experts so that transparency remains. This report would be helpful in bringing out the names of countries and people who despite violations clearly violate the arms embargo in Libya.
