Britain, France push Libyan no fly zone: 'There is a feeling of urgency now'
UNITED NATIONS — Britain and France could put a resolution to the UN Security Council this week demanding a no-fly zone over Libya to counter Muammar Gaddafi's offensive against rebels, diplomats said.
While the conflict is intensifying, the UN body is braced for a new diplomatic tussle over military action. Britain’s foreign minister has insisted that there must “a clear legal basis” for the zone and set other conditions.
“You should expect something on Libya this week,” one UN diplomat told AFP on condition of anonymity. “There is a feeling of urgency now.”
“There are elements of a text ready which can be distributed to the council. It could well be this week,” said a diplomat from another council nation.
