  1. Britain is working on plans for a military no-fly zone over Libya and is considering whether to arm the opposition forces in the east of the country.

    David Cameron, the prime minister, said the UK is “taking the lead” on steps to isolate the “illegitimate” Gaddafi regime.

    The EU foreign policy chief, Catherine Ashton, told reporters after addressing the UN human rights council in Geneva that a no-fly zone was being discussed.

    The Italian foreign minister, Franco Frattini, said European ministers had raised the issue of a no-fly zone with the US secretary of state, Hillary Clinton.

    Clinton told the meeting that “nothing is off the table”. However, US officials appear concerned that a vote on a no-fly zone could be harder to secure at the UN security council, where Russia and China may resist stronger action.

    Asked if he had discussed a no-fly zone in his meeting with Clinton, the Russian foreign minister, Sergei Lavrov, told reporters: “Absolutely not. It was not mentioned by anyone.”

  2. As Western warships began getting in position, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said planning any military intervention would be “superfluous,” indicating Russia would veto any such plans at the United Nations, NYDailyNews reported.

    Russia’s top diplomat has today dismissed plans to create a no-fly zone over Libya as embattled leader Moammar Gaddafi unleashed bombing raids, special forces and army troops in a desperate bid to retain power, Daily Mail informed.

    As Col. Moammar Khadafy unleashed new bombing raids in a desperate bid to hold onto power, the U.S., Britain, France and other allies considered imposing curbs on Libyan airspace to prevent Khadafy from bombing his own people, NYDailyNews reporter informed.

    According to Daily Mail, the dramatic move came as the Pentagon started moving warships in preparation to police a no-fly zone and world leaders imposed a raft of diplomatic and financial sanctions.

    But before any military action, he would have to secure international agreement and Russia’s consent is required as a veto-wielding member of the Security Council.

  3. 2008:

    The similarities with Ramzan Kadyrov are striking.

    As is customary in the East, the two leaders did not stint lavish praise of each other. With his characteristic directness, Kadyrov said that Gaddafi was one of the recognized leaders of the Muslim world and that therefore his opinions carry a great deal of weight with the Chechen Republic and its leadership. The Chechen President told the guest he knew that each year Gaddafi marks the birthday of the Prophet Muhammad in one of the countries of the Muslim world. In this connection Ramzan Kadyrov invited the Libyan leader to come to Chechnya and spend the holiday there in 2010.
