Spanish Prime Minister Jose Luis Rodriguez Zapatero warned Friday that the international community "will not be fooled" by the Libyan regime and will verify compliance with the UN resolution.

"The international community will not be fooled by the Libyan regime and will verify by all possible means that the resolution is strictly respected," he told a joint news conference with UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon.

The UN Security Council late Thursday passed a resolution approving "all necessary measures" to impose a no-fly zone in Libya, protect civilian areas and pressure Libyan leader Moamer Kadhafi into accepting a ceasefire.

The Libyan government Friday announced an immediate halt to military operations in the country following the resolution.
