EU-Libya: "Gaddafi must go away"

The statement was made by permanent EU president Herman Van Rompuy at the end on the European summit on the crisis in Libya. ''It is no longer time for ambiguity. The problem has a name. Gaddafi must go away''.

''The European Council unanimously states that Gaddafi must leave and that the National Transition Council is the new political interlocutor''.

The statement was made by French president Nicolas Sarkozy in Brussels. The European Council ''encourages'' Libya's National Transition Council in Benghazi deeming it ''a political interlocutor''.

The statement was made by permanent EU president Herman Van Rompuy at the end on the European summit on the crisis in Libya. ''It is no longer time for ambiguity. The problem has a name. Gaddafi must go away''.

The statement was made by European Commission president Jose' Manuel Barroso during the press conference held at the end of the meeting of EU heads of State and government dedicated to the Libyan crisis.

BERLUSCONI, GADDAFI MUST LEAVE AND STOP HIS ACTIONS - ''We invited Gaddafi to step back from his position and from the actions he is carrying out against his citizens'', Italian premier Silvio Berlusconi said after the EU summit on the Libyan crisis. ''For Europe Gaddafi can no longer be viewed as a credible interlocutor. We invited the colonel to step back from his positions''.

''No, it is not over'' is what premier Silvio Berlusconi told journalists in Brussels who asked him whether Sarkozy's proposal for targeted bombings in Libya had been approved by the European summit. ''We did not talk about it, so we do not agree'', Berlusconi explained.

Soon there will be a major summit involving the EU, Arab League and African Union to assess the situation in Libya. ''The European Council and the Member States will examine all possible measures to protect the population from missile strikes''. Sarkozy then announced that a special meeting of EU ministers of the Interior had been called to debate problems linked to immigration from the south shore of the Mediterranean.

- German chancellor Angela Merkel stated that she felt ''very sceptical'' on the chances of a military intervention in Libya, a notion instead supported by France and United Kingdom. ''For now there is no need to take such a decision. We follow the line decided in Nato, and will do everything that is needed on condition that there is a legal basis, such as a new UN resolution, and agreement by local organisations such as the Arab League''. German chancellor Angela Merkel also expressed her scepticism on the imposition of a no fly zone in Libya.

CAMERON, IMPOSE SANCTIONS ON TRIPOLI'S OIL - At the end of the European Council of heads of State and government in Brussels, British premier David Cameron issued an appeal to the European Union and the international community for ''sanctions'' on the Libyan oil industry. Cameron specified that Libya's national oil company must be added to the list of the 5 companies and 27 individual whose assets have been frozen.

The 27 leaders of the European Union are ''deeply concerned for the attacks on civilians'' in Libya. They guaranteed that they are ready to take ''all the necessary steps'' to stop them and stated that ''those responsible will be brought to justice and will pay the consequences''. The statement was made by EU permanent president Herman Van Rompuy at the end of the Council of heads of EU State and government dedicated to the Libyan crisis. Van Rompuy stated that ''all the necessary options'' to protect the Libyan population will be taken on condition that ''there is a proven need'', ''there is a clear legal basis'' and ''regional support''. In effects they are the same three conditions mentioned yesterday by Nato general secretary Anders Fogh Rasmussen and US minister of Defence Robert Gates while talking about a potential military intervention. During his speech the permanent president of the EU pointed out that a special summit dedicated to a crisis such as the present one has only been called ''on three other occasions'': Georgia, Iraq and September 11.
