Juncker Calls for NATO to Assume Control of Libya No-Fly Zone

March 23 (Bloomberg) -- Luxembourg Prime Minister Jean-Claude Juncker called for the North Atlantic Treaty Organization to take over “the great part of the command structure” of the coalition operation to impose a no-fly zone over Libya.

The 28-member alliance has yet to find the formula to balance military needs and political sensitivities in the five-day-old operation. France is resisting overall NATO command to encourage more involvement by Arab countries.

“We regret the European disorganization on this question,” Juncker told reporters today in Luxembourg. He said Luxembourg “generally welcomes” the decision to impose a no-fly zone and called for “strict adherence” to the United Nations resolution that authorized it.
