Europe, US Are Responsible for Libya Crisis: Macron

Europe, US Are Responsible for Libya Crisis
The EU and the US are “indisputably” responsible for the crisis triggered by their intervention in Libya, says the French president, who has called for "military and police" action against human trafficking in the African state.

“Europe, the US and other countries bear a responsibility for what is happening in the region, this is indisputable,” Emmanuel Macron said. His criticism of the NATO intervention in Libya in 2011 came during an address in Tunisia Thursday.

The West “collectively plunged” the war-ravaged nation into what he called an “anomie” without being able to manage the situation afterwards. Anomie, a French term, refers to a state of lawlessness, in which a society can’t provide moral support to an individual in that society. “The idea of unilaterally and militarily resolving the situation of a country is a false idea,” said the French president, RT reported.

He took aim at “certain countries” that decided to oust Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi. “We made a decision to intervene when we were thousands of kilometers from [Libya], without having, for some time, any political projects [on the situation],” Macron explained.

“Basically, [we thought] that removing a tyrant is enough to regulate all problems,” the French president said.
