France Won't Arm Libyan Rebels


France does not intend to arm the rebels in Libya, French President Nicolas Sarkozy’s office reported on Wednesday. The office noted, however, that France does not object to other countries providing weapons to the rebels.

It was also reported that Sarkozy said during a meeting in Paris with British Prime Minister, David Cameron, that while the UN resolution on Libya does not object to arming the rebels, he does not see a reason to do so at this time.
