As countries in the EU met on Friday to discuss imposing sanctions against Libya, Sweden's foreign minister Carl Bildt wrote on his blog that sanctions would be an important political signal – even though the hope is that at least some of them would soon become passé as another era could be on the way.

"But I believe the political signal in this decision is important right now," he writes.

Bildt also expressed pleasure over the United Nations Human Rights Council's recommendation that Libya be suspended from that UN organ.

"The decision was really historic - and I hope it contributes to an accelerated process of the disintegration of the regime," he writes. "They should never have been voted in – and Sweden was one of the few that didn't vote for it."
