Gaddafi should go

27.05.2011 - Deauville - Pía Figueroa

United States President Barack Obama said: *”We are joined in resolve to finish the job.*”

Russian President Dmitry Medvedev told in a news conference organized at the end of the gathering in Normandy, that he was prepared to mediate for Gaddafi’s departure, but he said *”Libya should be preserved as a single state”*.

British Prime Minister David Cameron said the time was right to *”ratchet up”* pressure on the Libyan regime, as he confirmed that the United Kingdom would deploy Apache attack helicopters for the campaign.

But a statement issued today by a group of former African presidents – including South Africa’s Thabo Mbeki and Nigeria’s Olusegun Obasanjo – expressed *”grave concern”* that there was still no sign of an end to Nato’s campaign in Libya.

As Syrian government troops dispersed a new round of protests in Damascus, the G8 communique called on the regime to *”stop using force and intimidation”* against its people.
