Museveni: Africans failed to protect Libya from the West

Ugandan President Yoweri Museveni says Africans have failed to protect Libya. He criticized African countries for failing to protect Libya from the military intervention of the United States and a NATO-led coalition in March 2011.

President Museveni told Allan Kasujja of the BBC that African countries should have used military resistance to “teach the Western powers a lesson”.

He explained that African countries should not have allowed western countries to attack Libya. “We should have intervened. We tried diplomatically, but we could have intervened even militarily,” he sounds.

According to him, Africa could have intervened and “give a lesson to these people”. Yoweri described Libya as an ‘African country attacked by foreign powers’, and “we should have intervened,” he added.

President Museveni also called the invitation by African states to the Berlin summit last week “symbolic”. Russian President Vladimir Putin, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, French President Emmanuel Macron and British Prime Minister Boris Johnson attended the summit.
