CAIRO, March 17 Egypt said on Thursday it would
not be involved in any military intervention in its neighbour
Libya after U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said
discussions were under way about possible Arab involvement.
"Egypt will not be among those Arab states. We will not be
involved in any military intervention. No intervention period,"
Egyptian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Menha Bakhoum told
She was responding to comments by Clinton, who visited Egypt
before travelling to Tunisia where she spoke on Thursday about a
possible Arab role. A French diplomatic source also said any
action could involve France, Britain, the United States and one
or more Arab states.
