India, Libya and the Principle of Non-Intervention
Delhi’s decision to abstain on the UN Security Council (UNSC) Resolution 1973, authorizing the use of force in the Libyan civil war was not about expressing India’s non-aligned or non-Western identity. Delhi’s own mixed record on international interventions suggests there was no question of high principle involved in its UNSC vote on Libya.
