UN’s Kobler tells Spiegel he doesn’t really care about how state structures in Libya look

A perfect illustration of the problem I raised with other analysts in my Newsweek piece this week, here: The UN’s Martin Kobler is rushing forward with government structures that will create long term instability and division in the country… all timed to Western – not Libyan – calendars:

Kobler says he doesn’t particularly care how the state structures look in the end as long as they guarantee the protection of human rights. “We don’t support a particular side, but we aren’t neutral,” he says.
