Ankara sets conditions to NATO for Libya actions

PanARMENIAN.Net - Erdogan: NATO should only enter Libya to determine that Libya belongs toTurkey, a NATO member that sees itself as a bridge between Europe and the Muslim world, declined Sunday, March 20 to support a military plan for the alliance to enforce a no-fly zone in Libya. On Monday, March 21 Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan said support was possible — but only if certain conditions were met.

"NATO should only enter Libya to determine that Libya belongs to Libyans and not to distribute its natural resources and richness to others," Erdogan said, speaking in Saudi Arabia. He said the operation must not turn into an occupation.

NATO's participation in any military action against Libya would require the approval of all 28 NATO members, AP reported.
