Press briefing on Libya
by Carmen Romero, the NATO Deputy Spokesperson and Colonel Roland Lavoie, Operation ‘’Unified Protector’’ military spokesperson
Carmen Romero (Deputy Spokesperson):
Good afternoon and welcome to NATO to both you here in Brussels and in Naples.
In a minute, my colleague Colonel Roland Lavoie will update you on Operation Unified Protector in detail. Before that I’d like to brief you on a couple of issues from here.
On Libya, tomorrow the North Atlantic Council will discuss with our operational partners the mission’s progress.. This meeting is part of our regular consultations on our operation. Allies commitment to the mission’s success remains firm.
We continue saving lives in Libya every day. And allies are as determined as ever to continue enforcing the United Nations mandate to protect civilians.
In Afghanistan we saw on Saturday a tragic event with the death of US service members and Afghan soldiers in a helicopter incident.
NATO expresses its strong solidarity with the American and the Afghan people and their governments.
NATO is determined to stay the course in Afghanistan, especially in this crucial period toward transition to Afghan lead. And with that, I’ll hand over to Roland in Naples.
Roland, the floor is yours
