    FYI The original source is an RT article i.e. Russian: 'Operation Sophia': WikiLeaks releases classified data on EU military op against refugee flows — RT News

    Obviously, respecting Libya's sovereignty would entail working together with its legitimate government. One's military clearly can't work together if there is no government or if there is an unreliable government in Lybia. Also, the document clearly focuses on using diplomatic channels, not simply entering Libyan terrotorial waters and landing on Libyan shores.

    Not sure what RT is suggesting here.
