WASHINGTON — The White House says the U.S. and NATO will continue military operations in Libya as long as Moammar Gadhafi keeps attacking his own people.
President Barack Obama met with NATO Secretary-General Anders Fogh Rasmussen (AHN'-derz FOHG RAHS'-moo-sihn) at the White House on Friday.
The White House says in a statement that the two agreed that the NATO-led mission has saved countless lives.
Representatives from the anti-Gadhafi Libyan Transitional Council are in Washington to meet with U.S. officials at the White House later Friday. Obama is not scheduled to join them.
The U.S. has been increasing its financial support for the opposition, but is not recognizing the Council as Libya's legitimate government.
