Tripoli, 6 December 2015:
NATO should not be thinking of intervening militarily in Libya according to its chief Jens . . .[restrict]Stoltenberg.
‘If a unity government is formed, we are ready to help it and provide assistance,” he said, adding “we are not discussing a major new military operation in Libya and I will not be recommending it”.
The NATO Secretary General was speaking in Rome today ahead of next Sunday’s international conference called in his capital by Italian premier Matteo Renzi.
Renzi has moderated indications in September that he did not rule out Italian involvement in an international peace-keeping force. However last week he said that intervening in Libya “is not on the agenda at the moment. We would rue the consequences of any intervention without a clear strategy”. [/restrict]
