German envoy still has queries on Libya no-fly zone
UNITED NATIONS, March 15
UNITED NATIONS, March 15 (Reuters) Germany's U.N. ambassador said on Tuesday some key questions about a proposed no-fly zone in a draft Security Council resolution on Libya remained unanswered.
Envoy Peter Wittig was speaking to reporters after a draft resolution providing both for a no-fly zone and for further sanctions against Libyan leaders was circulated by Britain, France and Lebanon at a meeting of the 15-nation council.
"We raised questions we felt are still not fully answered, as to the Arab participation in such a measure, as to whether the implementation of such a zone would run counter to the intention of the Arab League itself, the Arab League having pointed out that there should be no foreign intervention," Wittig said.
