NATO and partners have just decide to extend mission for Libya for another 90 days.
NATO and partners have just decided to extend our mission for Libya for another 90 days. NATO will continue its military campaign in Libya until at least September, NATO Secretary General Andres Fogh Rasmussen said on Wednesday, June 1, 2011.
This decision sends a clear message to the Qadhafi regime: "We are determined to continue our operation to protect the people of Libya. We will sustain our efforts to fulfil the United Nations mandate. We will keep up the pressure to see it through.", said Andres Fogh Rasmussen.
"Our decision also sends a clear message to the people of Libya: NATO, our partners, the whole international community, stand with you. We stand united to make sure that you can shape your own future. And that day is getting closer."
Fourteen of the 28 NATO countries are taking part in the operation Unified Protector in Libya, which includes airstrikes, a no-fly zone and naval enforcement of an arms embargo in response to attacks on civilians.
