Foreign Minister Trinidad Jiménez said on Sunday that Spain will "meet its obligations" if there is international intervention in Libya. This is the closest a political leader has come to committing to military action against Libyan dictator Colonel Gaddafi.
"Certainly, we will always support a [UN] resolution and later meet our obligations in coordination with our [EU and NATO] partners and allies," said Jiménez, adding that the UN Security Council must still issue its resolution. But she referred to any hypothetical joint action as a "humanitarian operation," rather than "military intervention."
Jiménez also met with Amr Musa, chief of the Arab League, in Cairo's Tahrir Square.
