US wants Indian system role in Libya

ISLAMABAD: The United States is tacitly promoting induction of Indian political role in Libya in its transition to a new system via the crucial National Transitional Council (NTC).

“But India, for example, has lots of experience in democratic governance, has lots of experience in working in small towns and villages on democracy issues. That might be one thing, but I don’t want to get ahead of what the NTC (National Transitional Council) might request”, international reports quote US spokesperson Ms Victoria Nuland having told media in Washington Wednesday.

Be it recalled that a forum ‘Friends of Libya’ comprising over 30 nations and multi-functional organizations is also active to help set thing ‘proper’ in the post-Gaddafi period in Libya where rebels have reportedly come to the ‘finishing’ phase of their Moammar Gaddafi-ouster-movement, doing heavy casualities on both sides.

US had long drawn out a dream sketch for a Greater Middle East extending from North Africa to Afghanistan plus Pakistan. And the 2005 US-India nuclear and strategic partnership looks extending gradually its ‘patronizing’ wings to give shade to the heated oil-rich African desert belt.

Nuland, responding to a query on future Indian relations with emerging Syria, referred to Secretary Hillary Clinton’s weeks past remarks where she (Clinton) “spoke to the fact that she would like to see India to do more. I shall leave it at that”.
