The proposal for international mediation in Libya, made by Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez, would not yield fruit, said Monday the president of Chile, Sebastián Piñera, who is visiting Madrid.

“In Libya we have practically a civil war”that “has already produced many dead and continue, the civil war is the worst of all roads, “said Chilean President  on Monday starting a three-day official visit in Spain.

“It’s a difficult decision because to intervene in the affairs of other countries is always challenging, ” he added. Hugo Chavez, seen as close to the Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi last week proposed creating an international peacekeeping mission made up of several friendly countries that can act as mediators between the Libyan leader and insurgents.

The Arab League said they will “consider” this option, but the Libyan opposition categorically rejected it.
