Russia NATO envoy warns of full-scale war in Libya

MOSCOW, - NATO could be dragged into a full-scale war in Libya, like those being waged in Iraq and Afghanistan, Russia's ambassador to the military alliance was quoted as saying on Saturday.

NATO has control of an arms embargo on Libya and agreed this week to assume command of a no-fly zone over its territory but Washington has been left in control of conducting air strikes against Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi's ground forces.

The United States hopes to hand over control of the air strikes as soon as possible and said on Friday it expected NATO to take command of it, although it was still being discussed.

"Just as we forecast, NATO is being drawn deeper and deeper into war in North Africa," Russia's envoy to NATO, Dmitry Rogozin, told Interfax news agency
