Croatian soldiers to be sent to Libya?
EU foreign ministers have approved military mission EUFOR Libya, aimed at impartially and neutrally boosting humanitarian aid, said the report.
The UN said that no military mission was necessary at the time in order to deliver humanitarian aid to the Libyans.
EU foreign ministers have agreed in Luxembourg to implement gas and oil embargo against Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi’s regime.
Energy companies that finance Gaddafi’s regime have been put on the list of sanctioned firms. 27 EU member states have already introduced sanctions against Libyan National Oil Corporation (NOC) and four of its branches, Index.hr has reported.
“We put another 26 firms from the energy sector on the list,” said German Foreign Minister Guido Westerwelle, adding that it was another step toward closing all financial sources of the Gaddafi regime.
Strict oil sanctions followed after Gaddafi’s associates had been banned from traveling abroad and after all his financial assets had been frozen by Brussels.
