whole world seventy years ago chechen terrorists kept more than one thousand people hostage in the siege that lasted for three days and left over three hundred people dead most of them children. now russia will also be attending the meeting of the friends of levy a group in paris had of the gathering moscow special envoy talked exclusively to our t. about what may be in store for the country after that office reign and the future of its relations with russia our interview with the hill mark alpha is coming up next. civil war about to end in libya what should the chances facing the new libyan authorities what role can russia play and is it going to help the new libya we're joined by a russian city jimmy you know the russian president's special envoy for africa and chairman of the federation council's foreign affairs committee. back in may russia
12:32 am
recognized the national transitional council as a legitimate party to the talks recently the russian president said that russia might recognize the in your thirty's as long as they can unite the country based on democratic principles despite the dramatic events in libya can we say that russia's position on libya has seen some adjustments over the past six months. perhaps is not such a good idea to start my answer with the word no it's still the answer is no opposition on the libyan political crisis has remained unchanged from the start in february we believe strongly that everything that has happened in libya is a political crisis which must be resolved naturally through political negotiation and consultation you can't resolve a crisis like this with military rules we said this when gadhafi issued his criminal orders to bomb the peaceful demonstration of those who opposed his regime and we said the same thing when a coalition started bombing tripoli we say the same thing today when the rebels
12:33 am
have achieved serious military success we said of the libyan political crisis will not be over this is just the end of the military phase of the crisis what we need today is consultation with the widest possible range of political forces in order to achieve national unity as regards our formal relations with libya we have not severed diplomatic ties with the country i'd like to stress that our relations are with libya as a country and we have always said that the people of libya are only friends there let's compare the situation in libya with to say to newsier or egypt both countries have had revolutions they've had a change of regime. but russia did not recall exam or see from chilliness or from cairo our ambassador has had contact with the foreigner governments and now we have contact with the new governments the same principle works in libya. is the market of some complain that russia's foreign policy is heavily. influenced by there is
12:34 am
fact is whereas progressive countries straight away supported the revolutionary forces the opposition the transitional council etc how would you respond to this criticism. our approach has never been to wait and see ever since the world leaders approached president medvedev and de ville and asked him to help establish political dialogue between the different parties in the libyan conflict our approach has never been to just wait and see of course unlike many of the progressive regimes you mention we've had enough of revolution in our own history we prefer evolution that's why we are somewhat reluctant to throw our support behind revolutionary rhetoric we understand clearly that slogans pass away and a tedious political process sets in so we are just doing our best to help start is quite a political process as soon as possible. but when did the opposition give up the idea of negotiating with colonel gadhafi or his team. which as regards
12:35 am
differences within the m.t.c. have always been differences over political dialogue and negotiations you always have some people who are more revolution oriented and people who are less revolution oriented i've met those people and i have to say i take them seriously i like them and i have a lot of respect for them both in tripoli and in benghazi and in other capitals where members of the libyan political little to reside all those people belong to the same political elite which is emerged in libya over the past forty five years i don't agree with the suggestion that the party that was in favor of political negotiations has suffered a defeat in libya's national transitional council they will still have to negotiate towards a national union after the fighting in. russia and the g. eight spoke in favor of going to get out the second down at this summit in deauville what does the future hold for colonel gadhafi. we are probably not the
12:36 am
ones who are best able to answer the question about mr gadhafi and his future it would be better addressed to the libyan justice system and to international tribunals mr gadhafi has lost his legitimacy as a ruler and his right to be called the leader of his people when he ordered airstrikes on unarmed civilians who were rallying to express political protest we stopped regarding mr gadhafi as a partner in negotiations when that happened i would say mr gadhafi will now determine his own future he chose the hardest path i would even say a suicidal puff he chose to make his supporters shed blood on his behalf until the last moment while he remained in hiding we do not know where he is presently it could be libya it could be another country regardless of this position he chose is not one of a politician who thinks about the future it's the position of a politician who is trying to save his own life if mr good after years on the run people will look for him and they will find him the fact is a wanted for mr gadhafi the rest has been issued by the international criminal
12:37 am
court it won't be revoked. and now a question about the political process we touched on earlier do you think the libyans will be able to reach some kind of balance some a common denominator because the previous ones have been left in the past is there any other idea that will unite everyone apart from toppling good effie's regime. i think this government will only be successful if it in compass is the largest possible number of different libyan political religious tribal cultural and professional groups in this case i think the council would have to contact the royal family and factions of the ruling elite in cairo led by mr gadhafi is cousin gadhafi. who spoke strongly against mr gadhafi his policy of suppressing popular protests by force they would also have to deal with the various factions within me and sing sing which is not a uniform organization but rather a colorful. collection of various people and political groups each with its own
12:38 am
beliefs and interests there are representatives of the tribal elite which i think will be needed if national unity is to be established there are also representatives of the intelligence of culture workers i can't mention any unions or similar institutions since over the past forty years gadhafi regime has succeeded in destroying anything that could be called a democratic institution by civilized standards there are no institutions about sort of libya and they will have to be created from scratch correct the n.c.c. stresses the importance of establishing political harmony between those numerous groups will this issue be result of the groups put aside old grudges. the libyans are apparently in a more favorable position compared to those who have gone through the complicated multi phased process of political restructuring before them libya can use the negative experience of afghanistan and iraq it can draw conclusions from the hard times egypt has survived and the less hard but still bloody past of two museum i
12:39 am
think the best way to accomplish this is to act responsibly right from the start to bear in mind that a final decision on what libya is going to become is one for the libyan people to make not for worlds politicians have been playing leading parts recently the national democratic vote will determine us and it should be well prepared and duly carried out this is where the international community and russia in particular is eager to render active support to the libyans those who think that the notion of russian arab friendship is outdated and is passing away with a totalitarian regimes of dictatorships literally mistake of nothing if a code i believe of the term of russian or of friendship and partnership is up to date as it was fifty years ago. let us talk about the role russia could play in libya's politics economy and perhaps some other spheres heal cooperation between libya and the u.s.s.r. and. a partnership between libya and russia. for the first step russia took as
12:40 am
libya's partner was to deliver humanitarian aid to the country during the military phase of a political conflict we had talks with the leaders of the national transitional council in benghazi and agreed with the interests of russia would be respected in libya after getting from was toppled at all contracts with russia would be preserved and the interests of russian companies are respected we're going to continue our active work in libya. heavy. according to early statements by the national transitional council a new government will respect contracts concluded with the russian federation but we also hear other statements like the one made by one of the new heads of the libyan oil company he doubted russia's position during the voting on security council resolution one nine seventy three saying that russia was more demanding than it should have been and that it was more reluctant to show its support for the opposition there is a possibility he added that some deals concluded with russian oil companies
12:41 am
operating in libya will be an old. i mean whether that was a mean. field workers on the boards of the national oil company are in the first place professionals and not politicians at the talks in benghazi my counterparts expressed their gratitude to russia for not torpedo for not vetoing resolution one nine seven three flipping it be passed its stance of the russian federation was highly appreciated by the national transitional council that's what matters russia has never silenced its commitment to resolutions one hundred seventy and nineteen seventy three and of the russian president signed a number of decrees in support of those two resolutions the decrees clearly state that russia will never give refuge harder to gadhafi or to his family or to immediate subordinates whose hands are sort of the blood of ordinary libyans we will never support him or the forces loyal to him financially or supply them with weapons and we have stuck to our commitments in full measure. had to see happen
12:42 am
that the west was consistent in supporting the revolutionaries whereas russia as one could say chose to stay away from libyan affairs when the fighting began naturally western companies with interests in libya will pursue those interests possibly using the n.p.c. to compete with russian companies the new libyan authorities in turn may choose to work with them rather than russian companies. but. i hope you will excuse my question but what are revolutions made for to gain access to oil and money to be made from it hardly so i heard the revolutionaries in benghazi say and i highly respect these words that revolutions perceive the goal of making the people's living conditions decent and normal at least not miserable as it used to be is to let people realize they are human and deserve to live as such if a country wanted people to live in human conditions it should maintain the balance of its political and economic interests but i have been traveling
12:43 am
a lot in africa as a special representative. of the russian president and i constantly hear african leaders complaining they're tired of one country's dominance one blocks dominance they tell me they need a multi-polar political situation a combination of different interests of the same is true for libya it won't be able to keep in line with the interests of just the european union just the united states or the states of the persian gulf and russia will always have its place and there's some very of multicolor picture i think those libyan politicians who will respect the national interest of the country will without don't consider for permission that russia. is worth. their club dues childhood missile rashad by this tragedy. they still feel the fear they faced. and remember every second of this nightmare.
12:44 am
remain in their memories and hearts forever. and as you saw. the be. a little angel on our team.
