Foreign Leaders Work on Terms of Libyan No-Fly Zone
Posted on Mar 8, 2011
The U.K., France, various Arab states and NATO representatives are all working on plans to prevent besieged Libyan leader Moammar Gadhafi from launching airstrikes against his people. Gadhafi’s forces continue to clash with rebels, who now control much of the country.
Plans for a possible no-fly zone over Libya are gathering pace in response to air strikes against rebel-held areas by Libyan leader Col Gaddafi.
The UK and France are drafting a UN resolution for an air exclusion zone and the issue is due to be debated by Nato defence ministers on Thursday.
Gulf Arab states have already backed the idea.
