The European Union should impose sanctions against Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi, forbidding him to travel to Europe and the freezing of his assets, said today at a meeting of foreign ministers of the European Union, Finnish Foreign Minister Alexander Stubb. It is reported by the German news agency DPA.
"As we can one side watch what's going on in Libya, where nearly 300 people were killed, and do not talk about sanctions against Gaddafi, on the other hand impose sanctions against Belarus? "- Ask Finnish Minister.
Today, the foreign ministers of the EU countries met in Brussels at the meeting of the Council of Foreign Ministers.
Prior to the meeting, Alexander Stubb, said that he hoped to have been introduced visa bans on travel to Europe, Gaddafi and his family, as well as targeted economic sanctions.

Today will be a discussion, "possibly at the next meeting of the Council of Ministers of Foreign Affairs of the EU, we will have concrete proposals," — said the head of the Finnish Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
