South African President: "NATO violates law"


The meaning of UN Security Council Resolution 1973 on Libya is being distorted in order to change the regime, carry out political assassinations and allow for foreign military occupation. This was stated by South African President Jacob Zuma, speaking in parliament in Cape Town South Africa.

According to the ITAR-TASS News Agency, he criticized the military action of NATO in Libya and said: "We plan to protest against the abuse of well-intentioned resolution 1973, prepared jointly by the League of Arab States and African states to address the UN Security Council", said Zuma.

According to him, the Alliance is undermining the efforts of the African Union to find a peaceful settlement and incontrovertibility violating international law.
