The departure of Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi is "inevitable", said today the Italian Foreign Minister Franco Frattini said, adding that the situation in that country had reached "a point of no return", when asked by Sky TV BT -24. Asked by a journalist on the possible departure of Colonel Qaddafi, the leader of Italian diplomacy said: "It's inevitable." "The situation in Libya has reached a point of no return," he added. "We had never seen a situation where the leader of a regime gives the order to kill his own brothers and sisters into mercenaries pay up," said Mr. Frattini.
Referring to the Treaty of Friendship signed between Rome and Tripoli in 2008, who settled the accounts of more than thirty years of Italian colonization (1911-1942), Mr Frattini said that he was suspended "in fact". Silvio Berlusconi at the time apologized and Italy had pledged $ 5 billion in damages in the form of investments over the next 25 years. "When you have more contact you can not enforce a treaty. We have no contacts now and the de facto suspension of the treaty is already a reality," said Frattini.
The Italian opposition has repeatedly called on Parliament to formally denounce the treaty signed by Silvio Berlusconi, whose tolerant attitude towards Muammar Gaddafi at the beginning of the Libyan crisis was denounced. The head of Italian diplomacy also welcomed the adoption by the UN unanimously to severe sanctions against Colonel Muammar Gaddafi, his family and relatives of the regime. "This vote represents an important turning point because it was made unanimously and it helps that the entire international community is convinced that the regime can not continue with this behavior that led to the deaths of thousands of innocent people" , said Frattini.
