PARLIAMENTARY Speaker Aqila Issa declared today that the internationally recognised Libyan government was against any Western military intervention in the country.
The government has been driven out of Benghazi and Tripoli and has set itself up in Tobruk.
Speaking in Cairo on the sidelines of an Arab League meeting, Mr Issa said that his government would only seek military help, if needed, from Arab nations.
“Foreign military intervention in Libya is rejected. If we need any military intervention, we will ask our Arab brothers,” he insisted.
His comments followed a speech by French President Francois Hollande ruling out unilateral military intervention in Libya.
However, Mr Hollande did say that French forces would strike extremists leaving Libya to bring arms to Africa’s sub-Saharan Sahel region.
A military spokesman for the Libyan government admitted yesterday that its fighter jets had bombed a Greek-owned tanker in Darna, killing two crew members, because it had no prior clearance to enter the port and was acting “suspiciously.”
