Zimbabwe Expels Libyan Ambassador Who Supports Rebels
Zimbabwe shows principle in international relations between peoples in its stance on the invasion of Libya and the illegitimate rebel NTC regime.

Zimbabwe has given Libya's ambassador to Harare 72 hours to leave the country.

Foreign Minister Simbarashe Mumbengegwi said ambassador Taher Elmagrahi and his staff had lost their diplomatic status after burning the Libyan Green Flag.

“The government of Zimbabwe does not recognize the NTC as the government and representative of the people of Libya,” Mumbengegwi told journalists, referring to the Libyan rebel's National Transitional Council.

“Once you renounce the authority that gave you the letter of credence and then proceed to pledge allegiance to another authority ... it means that act deprives you of your diplomatic standing.”

President Mugabe recently said he believed the West is only interested in Libya for its oil. Earlier this month he called NATO a terrorist organisation - akin to al-Qaeda - because of its illegal bombing of Libya.

Elmagrahi, staff from the Libyan embassy and some Libyan nationals in Harare last week burned the Green Flag and hoisted the one used by the rebels. #
