ROME—Italy has suspended a treaty that forbids it from participating in any military action against the regime of Col. Moammar Gadhafi, according to Italy's defense minister, making it easier for Rome to participate in any potential peace-keeping mission to the North African country.
As part of that sweeping accord, Italy agreed to refrain form "direct or indirect" use of military force against the Libyan government. The accord also forbids Italy from "allowing the use of its territory in any hostile act against Libya."
