Russia regretted the military intervention led by foreign countries in Libya, the Russian Foreign Ministry spokesman Alexander Lukashevich said in a Saturday statement.

Lukashevich also said the military actions against Libya was based on a "hastily passed" UN Security Council resolution.

"In Moscow, we regret this armed action within the hastily passed UNSCR Resolution 1973," the statement said.

The Resolution 1973 authorizes the use of force and the creation of a no-fly zone in Libya, where rebels and the government have been clashing for several weeks.

The statement also called for a cease-fire in the north African country as soon as possible.
