Under some assumption on system’s coefficients and delay functions it is shown that the classical Lotka-Volterra system \begin{aligned} {dx\over dt} &= x(t)[r_1- a_{11}x(t- \sigma_{11}(t))- a_{12}y(t- \sigma_{12}(t))],\\ {dy\over dt} &= y(t)[-r_2+ a_{21}x(t- \sigma_{21}(t))- a_{22}y(t- \sigma_{22}(t))],\end{aligned} with $$r_i>0$$, $$a_{ij}> 0$$, has a unique positive equilibrium that is globally attractive with respect to the set of positive solutions.
