The defence ministry's leadership on Tuesday will brief a parliamentary standing committee over Greece's supportive nature in Allied operations in Libya, in line with UN Security Council Resolution 1973.

Defence Minister Evangelos Venizelos referred to the issue during the meeting on Thursday with main opposition New Democracy (ND) vice-president Dimitris Avramopoulos.

Venizelos briefed Avramopoulos on the situation in Libya, military planning and requests by Allies for facilitations of supportive nature on Greek soil.
Greece has been a stabilising factor in the region and is responding to its contractual obligations, Avramopoulos said after the meeting.
The ND vice-president stated that the search for a headquarters that will manage the entire operation will complicate things and called on the UN Security Council to monitor the operations that are in progress in the region.
