Azerbaijan, Baku, March 9 /Trend, A.Taghiyeva/
As a result of an agreement between U.S. President Barack Obama and British Prime Minister David Cameron to end the violence in Libya, the Libyan leader will have to leave power, said Nadim Shehadi, Middle East expert at Chatham House (British Royal Institute for International Relations).
"The agreement between the USA and Britain, aimed at ending the violence in Libya, is a serious decision that can change the situation in the country," Shehadi told Trend by telephone from London.
Protesters have demanded the resignation of Libya's leader, Muammar Gaddafi, who has been in power for already 41 years. The protests have continued from Feb. 15. The authorities violently disperse demonstrations. The international organizations reported the clashes with security forces and foreign mercenaries have killed about 6,000 people.
On March 1 the U.S. representative to UN Susan Rice stated that the United States with NATO partners are discussing the possibility of military intervention in the situation.
On Wednesday, March 9, U.S. President Barack Obama and British Prime Minister David Cameron agreed to make joint efforts to immediately stop violence in Lebanon and achieve the resignation of the country's leader Muammar Gaddafi.
Shehadi said given the economic benefits, which links the EU and Libya, this statement shows that the authorities of Western countries have already passed the period of doubt when they could not decide at which side to take a place.
"This decision taken by the authorities of the USA and Britain shows that the authorities of these countries took a place near the Libyan rebels," he added.
Shehadi also believes that the U.S. government and the EU will act jointly with the UN and other organizations, and in this case the military invasion will not be illegal.
Son of Libyan leader Seiful - Islam Gaddafi recently made accusations against the British. He said that British Prime Minister, seeks to create an image of the hero and the "greed" is trying to take advantage of Libyan oil.
