David Cameron, Barack Obama and Nicolas Sarkozy upped the stakes in the Libya conflict last night as they vowed to fight on until Colonel Gaddafi is ousted.
In a joint article, the British, American and French leaders warned it would be an ‘unconscionable betrayal’ were Nato to stop bombing with the dictator still in power.
Gaddafi must ‘go and go for good’ before rebuilding of the country could begin, they said, rejecting calls for an immediate ceasefire.
However the highly unusual joint statement did little to paper over behind-the-scenes bickering over how to advance the military mission.
It will also fuel the concerns of critics who say the aims of the conflict are becoming dangerously blurred.
