CARACAS, September 10 (Itar-Tass) — The Bolivarian Alliance for the People of Our America (ALBA) denounced the NATO armed intervention against Libya.
A statement, adopted by ALBA foreign ministers by the results of a meeting held here on Friday, contains a demand on “an immediate and unconditional end to bombings and the armed intervention into the Libyan territory”. The meeting was attended by ministers or officials representing them from Antigua and Barbuda, Bolivia, Venezuela, Dominique, Cuba, Nicaragua, Saint Vincent and the Grenadines as well as Ecuador.
“The NATO forces carried out in Libya a military operation on replacing the ruling regime under the cover of a doctrine of a preventive war, juggling with the United Nations for the sake of their geopolitical and economic interests as well as in violation of the 1973 Security Council resolution,” says the statement, approved by the regional bloc.
The foreign ministers agreed that they will promote a discussion at a regular UN General Assembly on “a dangerous precedent, created in Libya” and demanded that Libya “should not be turned into a protectorate of NATO or the UN Security Council”.
A decision was taken to set up a working group during the UN General Assembly, whose tasks will include “monitoring frozen financial reserves of Libya” as well as investigation of crimes, committed in the North African countries by NATO forces. Another item of the final ALBA resolution was a demand that Libya’s seat at the UN should not be occupied “by representatives of illegal interim forces, thrust upon the country by foreign invaders”.
