EU countries agree plan to send ground troops to Libya

European Union countries have agreed on a plan to send ground troops to Libya, ostensibly to offer protection for humanitarian convoys. Ground units will be dispatched to Libya, if the United Nations requests the European Union to do so. In this case, the military will not be performing any combat missions.

European Union countries have agreed on a plan to send ground troops to Libya, ostensibly to offer protection for humanitarian convoys.

Ground units will be dispatched to Libya, if the United Nations requests the European Union to do so. In this case, the military will not be performing any combat missions.

Earlier, authorities of Western coalition countries denied the possibility of sending ground troops to Libya.

Presently, the air force of NATO countries is conducting strikes at Muammar Gaddafi’s targets. However, despite support from the air, the Libyan opposition cannot achieve notable breakthrough.

Both the politicians and military leaders recognize that there is presently a stalemate situation in Libya, where neither of the sides can win.
