NATO Secretary General at the International Contact Group for Libya in Istanbul: NATO remains committed to protect the Libyan people

The NATO Secretary General Anders Fogh Rasmussen visited Istanbul on 15 July 2011 and attended the meeting of the International Contact Group for Libya. During the meeting, the Secretary General said that NATO is supportive of all efforts to find a political solution to the Libya crisis and commended the initiative to develop a roadmap.

“I need to underline that any ceasefire among the parties would have to be credible, verifiable and with clear conditions” the Secretary General said. “Otherwise, we would risk a rebound of the violence.”
