Europeans in Libya: has the battle for oil begun?

It's been dubbed by some as "Sarkozy and Cameron’s war". The military intervention in Libya has resulted in the fall of Muammar Gaddafi, putting an end to over 40 years of authoritarian rule. Meanwhile, France and Britain are hoping to boost their presence in the country’s flourishing oil industry. Has the battle for oil begun? Watch our debate at the European Parliament.

Guests:

  • Pino ARLACCHI, Italian MEP, Socialists and Democrats.
  • Arnaud DANJEAN, French MEP, European People's Party.

Presented by Christophe Robeet

Produced by Anastassia Metral
