MOSCOW – Russia’s Permanent Representative to the UN, Vitaly Churkin, stressed that there is information which indicates that the anti-aircraft missiles smuggled from Libya are being used by the armed groups in Syria.

Russia Today website quoted Churkin as saying in a speech in front of the UN Security Council on Monday that the infiltration of weapons from Libya will influence not only the neighboring countries.

He stressed the necessity of considering a decision on preventing the smuggling of weapons from Libya, including portable anti-aircraft missiles, in line with a UN Security Council resolution in this regard, adding that the presence of chemical weapons in this country further complicates the problem.
