NAPLES - NATO will shortly be in charge of all military operations regarding Libya, their commander said on Tuesday, denying reports of a delay.

"NATO will soon take command of all operations," said Lieutenant-General Charles Bouchard. "NATO allies are transferring assets as we speak. We are on track."

Bouchard, a Canadian, said in a statement the transfer of command from coalition forces acting under a United Nations mandate, was moving ahead "at a powerful tempo".

NATO officials have said the alliance would reach initial operational capacity for takeover on Wednesday and full operational capacity on Thursday.
