EU’s Ashton opens office in Libya to suck Europe deeper into another Vietnam

  „Some countries suspect that Lady Ashton remains in the job only because Tories, who tried to block the Lisbon Treaty, are happy to have an “incompetent” as foreign minister,” writes The Telegraph. Sir Humphrey Appleby would be proud! But is this woman “incompetent” enough???

BEIJING, May 23 (Xinhuanet) — EU foreign policy chief Catherine Ashton has reiterated that Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi must relinquish power. She was speaking from the rebel stronghold Benghazi, where she also promised to offer long-term support to the Libyan opposition.

Catherine Ashton gave Libya’s embattled opposition a boost on Sunday.

EU foreign policy chief Catherine Ashton said, “Gaddafi must leave. And we must have a future for Libya that belongs to the people of Libya and moves forward as they would wish.”

Ashton also announced the opening of EU’s office in Benghazi, an effort to support the opposition.

Catherine Ashton said, “By opening the office of the European Union, I bring the commitment of the European Union 27 Member States — and all of the institutions —  in support of the people of Benghazi and of the people of Libya.”
