The meeting reconvened on Friday morning with no commitments yet to provide further ground—attack aircraft for the fight despite French and British calls for more intense airstrikes against Muammar Qadhafi’s forces.

NATO foreign ministers are meeting for a second day seeking to overcome deep differences over the military campaign in Libya.

The meeting reconvened on Friday morning with no commitments yet to provide further ground—attack aircraft for the fight despite French and British calls for more intense airstrikes against Muammar Qadhafi’s forces.

Alliance members agreed on Thursday that Col. Gadhafi must leave power but insisted the military mission remain focused on its declared goals of enforcing an arms embargo, protecting civilians and forcing the withdrawal of Qadhafi forces from cities they have entered.

Friday’s agenda also includes meetings with officials from Ukraine and Georgia, and with Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov.
