Libya: Salame' against peace force 'International community doesn't want to send it'

(ANSAmed) - BERLIN, JANUARY 21 - The UN special envoy for Libya Ghassem Salamé has said he is against sending international peacekeeping troops to the Noth African country in an interview to Welt. ''Foreign troops are not accepted in Libya. And I also don't see the willingness in the international community to send them''.

He added that the important thing now is for a ceasefire to become a long-lasting truce. ''The blue helmets are not necessary for this purpose, only a small number of military observers'', he also noted. The ''5+5'' military commission will meet for the first time in mid-February, Salamé said. (ANSAmed).
