  • [01] Gov't: 'balanced' position on Libya

    (ANA-MPA) -- Greece is not taking part in operations of a military nature in Libya, but is providing facilitations of a supportive nature in line with the country's obligations deriving from the relevant UN Security Council resolution, Foreign Minister Dimitris Droutsas said on Monday during an interview on a private television station.

    He also stressed that the east Mediterranean country is observing a "balanced" position, something also echoed by Defence Minister Evangelos Venizelos in a newspaper interview published on Monday.

    "There are UN Security Council resolutions. The aim of these resolutions is for there to be an end to the violence in Libya, for the violence aimed at the Libyan people themselves to be stopped," Droutsas added. (ANA-MPA)
