Ambassadors of Venezuela, Ecuador, Cuba, Nicaragua, and Bolivia discussed in the United Nations, UN, about the danger of any foreign military intervention in Libya. These five countries talked about this topic after Libya was expelled from the Human Rights Council of the UN due to the violent use of force from Gaddafi’s regime to suppress the demonstrations.
The Ambassador of Cuba, Pedro Nuñez Mosquera, made statements against the possible intervention of United States and the European Union with military forces. Meanwhile, Jorge Valero, the Venezuelan Ambassador claimed that this is the moment for peaceful diplomacy and not for war. Afterwards the Nicaragua Ambassador, Maria Rubiales, strongly criticized the media intervention against Libya who presented contradictory news to justify any foreign military intervention.
Ecuadorian president, Rafael Correa, added that the plan of his Venezuelan counterpart, Hugo Chavez, is a good idea although he does not have a clear idea of what this plan means. Apparently Chavez plan is to create a help group for their friends in Libya.
