Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan says Turkey opposes economic sanctions against Libya because it will hurt the Libyan people. "It is wrong to act hastily in such situations. And it is not right at present to impose sanctions on Libya since such measures punish the people", Erdogan said on Wednesday. "We are not supposed to meddle in Libya's affairs... and it is up to the Libyan people to decide their own fate", he added.
The remarks come, after the United States of Zionism and the European Union announced they were considering the possibility of imposing economic sanctions on Libya due to Gaddafi's strict action against the undercover mercenaries posing to be civilians and destroying Army infrastructure and killing Libyan civilians to later on put its blame on Government.
