The United States Senator John McCain arrived to Libya on Friday and met with the Libyan anti-regime leadership, which on its part received the US visitor with hails, expressing its pleasance with this assistance.
"We are so pleased," the anti-regime Transition National Council’s Liaison official, Mustafa Gheriani told AFP.
American President Barak Obama has authorized sending armament consisting of drones and missiles to assist the Libyan fighters in confronting the regimes’ attacks against civilians.
AFP quoted Gheriani saying, “We hope that this can bring some relief to the people in Misrata”.
This American step that aimed at increasing the US involvement in Libya’s internal crisis was welcomed by the anti-regime fighters who hoped this armament would end the siege Moamar Kadhafi’s troops are imposing against Misrata, however was denounced by Libya’s Deputy Foreign Minister who told the BBC radio that “They will kill more civilians “.
"This is very sad... they are claiming they are supporting democracy, (but) supporting democracy, I think, is helping people to sit together and talk together and have a serious dialogue for the future,” he added, pointing out that the Libyan people have the right to decide their future without the power of airstrikes and financial interference.
