Recep Tayyip Erdogan urges UN security council not to impose sanctions on Libya

The prime minister, Recep Tayyip Erdogan, has urged the UN security council not to impose sanctions on Libya.

Erdogan said sanctions would punish the Libyan people rather than Gaddafi’s regime. He also suggested that the international community might be acting more out of concern about Libya’s oil reserves than about the welfare of the country’s people.

The people are already struggling to find food, how will you feed the Libyan people? Sanctions, an intervention, would force the Libyan people, who are already up against hunger and violence, into a more desperate situation. We call on the international community to act with conscience, justice, laws and universal humane values not out of oil concerns.
