Remarks at the Opening of the African Union Panel of the Wise Workshop

  • Share

"The events in Libya however call for a somber reflection. An unmistakable uprising of some sections of the Libyan people starting especially with Benghazi was met with a ferocious and unacceptable display of military onslaught by the government forces. Attempts to find a less violent and negotiated solution to the crisis spearheaded by the African Union were effectively frustrated by the ardent: desire to use the tragic situation to bring about regime change. Is there anything more the AU and African states could have done? What lessons do we draw from all this Libyan saga?" - Dr. Salim, December 5, 2011
