NATO to keep up military, political pressure on Libya

May 19, 2011 13:58

BRATISLAVA - NATO strikes have seriously degraded Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi's military power and his leadership is becoming more isolated, NATO Secretary-General Anders Fogh Rasmussen said on Thursday.

Rasmussen said a combination of strong military and political pressure and opposition support would eventually lead to the collapse of Gaddafi's rule.

"We have significantly degraded Gaddafi's war machine. And now we see results, the opposition has gained ground," Rasmussen told a news conference.
