Hillary Clinton at NATO Talks Amid Libya Friction

Berlin, Apr 14 (AFP) US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton arrived today in Berlin for NATO talks amid friction within the Western alliance over sharing the burden of the Libya military campaign.

The meeting of NATO foreign ministers today and tomorrow is among a series of international consultations on Libya. On Wednesday, world powers meeting in Qatar pledged financial assistance to the cash-strapped rebels.

Britain and France, which had led global calls for action to stop Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi's attacks on his own people, have pressed NATO allies to deploy more combat jets.

French Foreign Minister Alain Juppe has said he would raise his concerns during the Berlin talks.

US President Barack Obama's administration, which has stepped up the war in Afghanistan and proclaimed an end to combat operations in Iraq, has been keen for Western allies to bear the brunt of the Libya operations.
