NATO Forces in Libya

Overcoming deep differences among its 28-member nations, the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) has agreed to take the lead role in enforcing the ‘no-fly’ zone over Libya as per the mandate of the UN Security Council resolution.

“NATO has now decided to enforce the no-fly zone over Libya. We are taking action as part of the broad international effort to protect the civilians against the attacks by the Gaddafi regime. We will cooperate closely with our partners in the region and we welcome their contributions,” said NATO Secretary General, Andres Fogh Rasmussen.
