Libyan foreign minister in Ethiopia to push for peace
April. 25 2011
Libyan Foreign Minister Abdelati Obeidi is heading to Addis Ababa to discuss the African Union peace plan as part of an effort to intensify contacts aimed at ending the war, a government spokesman said.
Mussa Ibrahim confirmed that Morocco had been involved in peace efforts and said Muammar Gaddafi's government was also in contact with Russia, Greece, Turkey and Latin American governments in a bid to agree a peace plan.
"In the next few days and weeks we are intensifying our peaceful efforts. We are supporting the Greek, Turkish, African and Latin American peace initiatives," he told Reuters.
"We are very hopeful that in the next few days, the next week or two, the peaceful proposals... will take shape and will embarrass NATO into accepting them because NATO has to understand that if it is really into peace and democracy in Libya it should stop bombarding us and start talking to us."
