GRODNO OBLAST, 4 November (BelTA) – The NATO operation in Libya is an act of the 21st century vandalism, President of Belarus Alexander Lukashenko told the press in Grodno Oblast on 4 November.
Asked about Libya’s future taking into account the large number of firearms on people’s hands, proposals voiced to introduce Sharia law, penetration of terrorist groups into Libya, Alexander Lukashenko said: “We can view the situation extremely negatively only. How can we evaluate NATO actions in Libya? As a violation of the mandate of the UN Security Council. I am not exaggerating this headless and senseless Security Council. I am not exaggerating their role and the role of the United Nations Organizations. The latter has evolved into some kind of cover-up. See or yourself: Iraq, Afghanistan, an entire Arabic curve. Why has UN failed to prevent all of it?”
According to Alexander Lukashenko, the UN and the UN Security Council played in favor of the aggressors. “It seems they have written one mandate while the NATO troops dared to violate the mandate,” said Alexander Lukashenko.
In his words, now many say that NATO has violated the UN mandate, including Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov. “I absolutely agree with him,” said the head of state.
“An aggression has been accomplished, the country’s leadership have been murdered, not only Muammar Gaddafi. Besides, he was killed by NATO special forces. They mocked him, tortured him, raped the injured man, broke his arms and then killed. They did worse the Nazi in their time”.
God forbid the policy will prevail across the globe, said the Belarusian leader.
Alexander Lukashenko mentioned events in Tunisia and Egypt where positions of radical Islamists have become much stronger. “The situation in Libya will be much worse because the country has colossal deposits of natural resources. Everyone has rushed to get there. Besides the USA, Italy, France, Germany have up to $150 billion of Libyan money now. They are very interested in snatching these riches.”
Alexander Lukashenko remarked that in Libya and other countries of the Arabic curve where revolutions have happened the people the West does not exactly like rise to power. “They cannot control this thing. It will serve them well. This act of the 21st century vandalism cannot happen,” stressed Alexander Lukashenko.
“But such actions show the face of our so-called teachers of democracy. Do you need this kind of democracy?” wondered Alexander Lukashenko.
