Russia: Nato has overstepped UN mandate on Libya

Russia: Nato has overstepped UN mandate on Libya (Rossiyskaya Gazeta, Russia) 21 Apr 2011 As Nato members met to rally forces in the Libya operations, Russia kept up pressure on the alliance to adhere to its UN mandate. Old concerns about missile defences were close behind. At a Berlin meeting of Nato foreign ministers, Russia reiterated its stance that the western alliance's Libya campaign has overstepped its UN mandate through use of excessive force... "We consider that certain actions by Nato in Libya do not correspond to its mandate, and we would like to investigate this," Sergey Lavrov, the Russian foreign minister, said after Friday's talks.
