The United States will participate "fully" in military operations in Libya and this will be apparent "in the days and hours ahead", French Foreign Minister Alain Juppe said Saturday.

He added that the goal of the mission was to "help free the Libyan people" of strongman Moamer Kadhafi and his regime.

"As for the Americans, they will also participate fully in the operation, that will be apparent in the coming hours and days," said Juppe on French television. "It is an operation of the international community."
