Top Diplomat Blasts Western Devastation of Libyan Infrastructures

Speaking in a meeting with the Swedish Foreign Ministry's Director-General for Middle-East and North Africa Robert Rydberg here in Tehran on Tuesday, Ahani denounced the Libyan invasion under the pretext of UN resolutions.

"The devastation of Libya's economic infrastructure by NATO's bombardments, based on wrong and egotistical interpretations of the [UN] Security Council's resolution, is unacceptable and deplorable," Ahani stated.

"Politically motivated and instrumental approaches to the honorable issue of human rights are by no means acceptable and will yield no result," he added.

The Iranian deputy foreign minister urged the international community to compel the Western powers to revise their biased approach to the recent developments in the Middle East and North Africa.

"The international community's efforts to enforce a basic democratic framework based on respect for the principle 'one individual, one vote' will make a great contribution to solving the issues in the region," Ahani asserted.

NATO has conducted hundreds of sorties over Libya since it assumed control of a military campaign to impose a no-fly zone over the country and save civilian lives in late March.

NATO itself has admitted to killing revolutionary fighters and civilians in an airstrike in eastern Libya but has adamantly refused to apologize for the deadly bombardment.
