‘NATO has not yet decided to act,’ the diplomat said.
Diplomats from the alliance’s 28 member nations were meeting Saturday to prepare a comprehensive plan of military action against the regime of Libyan leader Moamer Gaddafi, even though NATO’s mandate does not yet got that far, another diplomat said. …
There is no authorization as yet for airstrikes against Gaddafi’s ground forces.
According to diplomats, NATO would first attempt to destroy Gaddafi’s radar and air defences.
A second goal may be to stop from the air the advance eastwards of Gaddafi’s ground forces. (photo: Reuters)
