Obama keeps Libya sanctions in place for another year – Obama prolunga le sanzioni alla Libia di un altro anno – (Eng-Ita + Video)

US President Barack Obama has told Congress that the sanctions his administration imposed on Libya last year will be extended for another year, White House officials said.

Obama informed Congress on Thursday that the national emergency order allowing sanctions against Libya will continue, noting that Washington was concerned by ongoing threats posed to US interests by the family of Libya’s slain dictator Muammar Gaddafi.

“The situation in Libya continues to pose an unusual and extraordinary threat to the national security and foreign policy of the United States,” Obama said in a letter to congressional leaders.

“We need to protect against this threat and the diversion of assets or other abuse by certain members of Gaddafi’s family and other former regime officials,” he said.

“Therefore, I have determined that it is necessary to continue the national emergency with respect to Libya,” he wrote.

Obama declared the national emergency over Libya on February 25, 2011, citing threats to US national security and foreign policy posed by Gaddafi and his government in their “extreme measures” against the people of Libya.

National emergency regulations authorize the US president to impose sanctions on foreign countries.

Sanctions imposed on overseas Libyan assets by the United Nations, the United States, and other nations have unwound slowly since Gaddafi’s death last year. However, releasing the assets is both politically and legally complicated, because the frozen funds include investments and property owned by private individuals.

WASHINGTON – Il presidente degli Stati Uniti Barack Obama ha deciso di allungare per un altro anno le sanzioni contro il popolo libico.

Secondo Press TV, giovedì Obama ha informato il Congresso della sua decisione sostenendo di essere preoccupato dalle minacce agli interessi Usa mosse dalla famiglia di Gheddafi.

Obama ha sostenuto inoltre che la situazione in Libia “continua ad essere una minaccia straordinaria contro la sicurezza e la politica estera degli Stati Uniti”.

Ironia della sorte, sia prima della caduta di Gheddafi, e naturalmente ancor di più dopo di lui, la Libia non è mai stata in alcun modo una minaccia ne per gli Stati Uniti ne per alcun altro paese.

Oggi, anche se la Libia ha un governo a dir poco filo-occidentale e nella migliore delle ipotesi instaurato dalle bombe della Nato, Obama continua a imporre sanzioni al paese dimostrando di avercela non con il governo ma con il popolo della Libia.
