MOSCOW - Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said on Thursday that arming Libyan rebels was a "crude violation" of a UN Security Council resolution that imposed a comprehensive arms embargo on Libya from February.

"We asked our French colleagues today whether reports that weapons from France were delivered to Libyan rebels correspond with reality," Lavrov told journalists.

"If this is confirmed, it is a very crude violation of UN Security Council resolution 1970, which was adopted by consensus."
