Spain will not step up its role in the military operation in Libya, Foreign Minister Trinidad Jiminez said at a NATO meeting in Berlin.

"Spain chose to provide capacity to monitor the arms embargo for a period of three months, and the no-fly zone. This is the force that Spain is providing and will continue providing in the future, which is the authorisation that was asked for in parliament," Jiminez said.
