Russia to Represent Libya at UN

Russia will represent Libya at a special UN Security Council discussion Monday night, being held at Libya's request. Since the no-fly zone was imposed on Libya over the weekend, no Libyan officials will be able to leave the country to attend the meeting, and as Libya is not a member of the Security Council, it must be represented by a member country.

Russia, along with China, Brazil, and Germany, abstained in the vote to authorize intervention in the country over the weekend.
