PARIS - Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper said on Saturday that "extensive" aerial operations would soon start in Libya and Canada would be part of that.

Harper, speaking to reporters following talks between world powers on a coordinated intervention in Libya, said naval actions were also taking place, including a naval blockade.

"The parameters of our mission are clear. They are wide ranging and they do not include on-the-ground action," Harper said. "It is our belief that if Mr. Gaddafi loses the capacity to enforce his will through vastly superior armed forces, he simply will not be able to sustain his grip on the country."
