PARIS - Foreign military intervention in Libya will not happen without a clear United Nations mandate, French Foreign Minister Alain Juppe said on Tuesday.

"At the moment I speak, no military intervention is planned," Juppe, a veteran politician made foreign minister in a reshuffle on Sunday, told France's lower house of parliament.

"Different options can be assessed, notably a no-fly zone. But let me put it clearly here - no intervention will happen without a clear UN Security council mandate".
