Libya to impose ‘total’ economic embargo on Switzerland
Libya has decided to impose a “total” economic embargo on Switzerland, government spokesman Mohammed Baayou said on Wednesday, after Libyan leader Moamer Kadhafi declared holy war on Bern.
“Libya has decided to impose a total embargo on all economic and commercial exchanges with Switzerland,” Baayou said.
The country will “adopt alternative (sources) for medicines and medical and industrial equipment” imported from Switzerland, he added.
Kadhafi made the jihad call last Thursday over a recent Swiss ban on the construction of minarets, but this is just the latest salvo in a nearly two-year-old diplomatic war
