Libya: PM Denies any Promises to France to Establish Military Base in Libya
01/03/2013 21:05:00
Tripoli—Libyan Prime Minister Ali Zidan vehemently rejected media reports that he promised to allow France to establish military bases in Libya.

Speaking at a press conference in Tripoli on Thursday, Mr. Zidan said “we have promised no foreign country to establish bases in Libya neither in the south nor in the north,”

“The government never promised nor discussed this matter which is not even a subject for talk,” he added.

“In no way can there be any foreign bases in Libya. When we asked for the NATO help, and I was the first to visit the NATO, the decision was from the beginning not to allow any foreign forces on Libyan territory,” Zidan stressed.

“This is what was agreed upon in the office of the French President Sarkozy. We told him there would be no forces on the ground,” he added.

Zidan said the incorrect reports came from the Anadolu News Agency which said Mr. Zidan during his latest visit to France he made such promise which was simply baseless.
