American leader Barack Obama has noted that his unpreparedness for consequences of Gaddafi’s ousting was the worst and rudest mistake of his ruling. However, American incursion into Libya was the right step, he said.

In 2011, a number of countries, including the USA, carried out airstrikes aiming to protect Libyans.

However, after the death of Muammar Gaddafi, Libya faced great problems since militants caused chaos and created two rival governments.

Furthermore, Daesh also found its place in the country and became the main point for refugees, who have been trying to reach Europe.

Obama has mentioned regret over Libya for several times. Last month, he noted that the Libyan operation had been right, but the country turned into a mess. In addition, he sharply criticized Great Britain and France, condemning distraction of British PM David Cameron.
