Libya to impose immediate cease-fire after U.N. resolution - 18th Mar 2011

Libyan foreign minister Moussa Koussa tells reporters that Libya will impose an immediate ceasefire and will abide by the U.N. Security Council resolution.

He says Libya is stopping all military operations against rebel forces.

Speaking to reporters in Tripoli, he says Libya will "try to deal positively" to the resolution, which calls for a no-fly zone and a ceasefire.

He says the U.N.-imposed no-fly zone will affect civilian flights as well as military and will thus "increase the suffering of Libyan people and will have negative impact on the general life of the Libyan people." Source
