France: Gaddafi could remain in Libya

PARIS – Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi could remain in Libya if he agreed to step down, French Foreign Minister Alain Juppe suggested on Wednesday, news24 reports. “One of the hypotheses envisaged is that he stays in Libya, but on condition, that he very clearly removes himself from Libyan political life,” Juppe told France’s LCI television.

On the other jand, reports from The Independent says American officials demand his departure in direct talks with Libyan government representatives amid claims yesterday that rebels had taken the oil port of Brega. At the face-to-face meeting between officials from the United States and Libya, which were reportedly held in Tunisia at the weekend but revealed only yesterday, neither side appears to have given ground.
