BRUSSELS, Oct. 21 (Xinhua) -- NATO's top military commander Adm. James Stavridis said on Friday that he will recommend the end of the Libya mission to the alliance's decision-making body.
"As (supreme allied commander) I will be recommending the conclusion of this mission to the the North Atlantic Council in a few hours," Stavridis wrote on his Facebook page.
"A good day for NATO, a great day for the people of Libya," he said.
