Allied operation in Libya to last 'weeks': French military

25th March 2011, Comments 0 comments

France's Chief of Defence said Friday in a radio interview that he thought allied military operations in Libya would last a matter of "weeks" and hopefully not "months".

"I doubt that it will be (over) in days, I think it will be weeks, and I hope it won't be in months," Admiral Edouard Guillaud told the France Info radio station.

"There will not be, strictly speaking, a situation of getting bogged down militarily because obviously the solution is political," he said.

"Clearly, it is now a matter of finding political solutions, but that's not my domain," he added.
