NATO allies vowed Wednesday to stay in Libya “for as long as necessary” and commit the “necessary means” to the military campaign against forces of Moamer Kadhafi, AFP reported.
Alliance defence ministers said they were “determined to continue our operation to protect the Libyan people for as long as necessary,” in a statement issued after a working lunch in Brussels.
“We are committed to providing the necessary means and maximum operational flexibility within our mandate to sustain these efforts and welcome additional contributions to our common efforts,” the statement added, after NATO urged its 28 member states to step up and share out the load.
