Russia Urges Immediate Libya Ceasefire

"Russia wants to see an immediate ceasefire in Libya and the start of political negotiations," Defense Minister Anatoly Serdyukov told visiting US Defense Secretary Robert Gates on Tuesday.

"We are convinced that the shortest path to the safety of peaceful civilians is through an immediate ceasefire and the start of dialogue," Serdyukov added.

The call comes after Russia's prime minister denounced a UN Security Council resolution authorizing a military offensive against Libya.'
