Western powers attacked
27 August 2011
Former president Thabo Mbeki has attacked Western powers.
He says Western powers are determined to bring about regime change in Libya, regardless of the cost to that country.
In a speech to students at Stellenbosch University, Mbeki accused major Western powers of intervening in Libya to advance what he described as “their selfish interests".
He added that they had used the United Nations Security Council and a resolution to enforce a no-fly zone over Libya to achieve their aims.
