Russian President Dmitry Medvedev told his U.S. counterpart Barack Obama on Thursday that an overriding priority for the international community in Libya was to prevent civilian deaths.
The two leaders discussed the situation in the North African country on the phone, the Kremlin press service said.
“The Russian president emphasized the need to prevent deaths among civilians and said priority should be given to the goals set in UN Security Council Resolution 1973,” the press service said.
The two presidents also discussed Russia’s admission to the World Trade Organization and European missile defense.
