BELGIUM–(ENEWSPF)–27 June 2011. The following statement is attributed to NATO Secretary General Anders Fogh Rasmussen.
“This decision once again highlights the increasing isolation of the Qadhafi regime. It reinforces the reason for NATO’s mission to protect the Libyan people from Qadhafi’s forces. Qadhafi and his henchmen need to realise that time is rapidly running out for them. NATO is more determined than ever to keep up the pressure until all attacks on civilians have ended, until all regime forces have returned to their bases and until there is unhindered access to humanitarian aid for all those who need it.”
