BRUSSELS, October 28 (Itar-Tass) — NATO has assumed the right to choose the Libyan future, and this choice is between a tyrant and Islamism, Russian Permanent Representative to NATO Dmitry Rogozin told Itar-Tass on Friday.
He did not quite agree with the statement by NATO Secretary General Anders Fogh Rasmussen, who said that the alliance had fully complied with the UN Security Council mandate in the protection of civilian population, the provision of the no-fly zone and the arms embargo.
The ministerial conference of the Russia-NATO Council due on December 8 “will have a rather hard time analyzing the lessons of Libya,” he said.
“We cannot avoid an analysis of the aftereffects of the NATO campaign in Libya, where the alliance freely interpreted the UN resolution and actually assumed the right to choose the future for Libya,” Rogozin said.
