Gadaffi Seeks Nigeria’s Intervention Over NATO’s Air Raids

LIBYAN Foreign Minister, Abdulahi Obaidi, yesterday met with President Goodluck Jonathan at the Presidential Villa Abuja with a message from Libyan Leader, Muamar Gadaffi appealing for Nigeria's intervention in the current bombardment of areas and forces controlled by Gadaffi by North Atlantic Treaty Organisation (NATO) warplanes.

Obaidi, who is also Gadaffi's Special Envoy, spoke to journalists after his meeting with President Jonathan saying, "NATO has to stop further defiling of Libyan sovereignty as a nation."

He added: "Since the crises in Libya are internal, there are no basis for external interference."

On President Jonathan's response to Gadafi's appeal, Obaidi said "the President promised to table the issue at the next African Union (AU) Heads of Government summit scheduled for Malabo, Equatorial Guinea on the 29th of this month."

And just as the Libyan Special Envoy left, President Jonathan met with the British Secretary of State, International Development, Andrew Mitchel.

Mitchel had met earlier with Vice President Namadi Sambo.

There were no indications yet of the issues discussed with the British cabinet Minister.
