Algerian Prime Minister: Military Intervention in Libya Won’t Solve Anything—Development Required

June 12, 2016 (EIRNS)—Just as NATO is possibly preparing plans for a military intervention against ISIS in Libya, Algerian Prime Minister Abdelmalek Sellal is warning that a military intervention won’t solve Libya’s problems. Sellal, reports Al Arabiya network, said in an interview that developed countries should kick-start the development assistance programs that have been either put on hold or drastically reduced since the 2008 financial downturn.

"They must act as rapidly, if not more, than they did when they came to the rescue of the global stock market and banking system. The world’s peace and security are as important as any bank’s or financial institution’s operating statements,"

he said.

NATO may be insane enough to think that it can intervene in Libya again and produce a different result than it did the first time, but clearly there are prominent leaders in North Africa who don’t believe that.
