Canada Libya Mission

Canada Libya MissionCanada Libya Mission, Top Canadian military authorities and diplomatic say little about whether they will be able to withdraw from the UN mission led by the military in Libya at the end of September as planned.

Maj.-Gen. John Vance could not give a direct answer when asked by deputies Friday morning when officials will stick so far out of Canada’s mandate to 27 September 2011, based on the stability of Libya today.

“There are many factors come into play,” said Vance meeting of the parliamentary committee informally. “The efforts of NATO today are essential.”

If the army withdraws today – without a negotiated settlement with the dictator Muammar Gaddafi – Vance said that it would be an “absolute disaster.”

The general, with Sandra McCardell, Canada’s Ambassador to Libya, and other officials have been demonstrated at the meeting of Defence Committee of Canada’s role in Libyan mission to protect its citizens against the military attacks of Gaddafi.

“A ceasefire is as much a political as a military,” Vance told the committee, saying the military’s role is to keep the pressure on Gaddafi’s forces to withdraw from combat and return to their bases. “Incremental improvements are currently underway.”

The diplomats, meanwhile, are trying to forge a “verifiable” the cease-McCardell said. Kadhafi announced a cease in the past, but his forces continued to fire.

She said envoys are always looking for the right person within the regime to come to the negotiating table.
