Libya: NATO “Has no plans to intervene”

In Kiev on 24th February 2011, the NATO Secretary General, Anders Fogh Rasmussen, said that NATO “has no plans to intervene” in Libya:

“I cannot consider the situation in Libya a direct threat to NATO or NATO Allies, but, of course, there may be negative repercussions.

“Such upheaval may have a negative impact on migration, refugees, etc., and that also goes for neighbouring countries.

“But I would like to stress that NATO as such has no plans to intervene. We have not received any request in that regard and any actions should be based on a UN mandate.”

Meanwhile, Europe is bracing itself for a wave of refugees from government violence in the country.
