Focus-Libya - Frattini on Libyan negotiations and political directions

ROME, July 5, 2011/African Press Organization (APO)/ -- Focus-Libya - Frattini on Libyan negotiations and political directions

“The Libyans should be the ones to define negotiations and the political directions of the new Libya, we cannot negotiate in place of the Libyans”, Minister Frattini stated, underscoring that “this flurry of denials and counter-denials gives the idea of an unclear situation”. Frattini explained that “one thing only is clear: that Gaddafi must step down and that there is an international mandate for his arrest; Italy must work toward a political solution without the Colonel, but no one has ever thought of targeting or killing him”.

“Italy's position is well known and extremely clear”, foreign ministry spokesman Maurizio Massari stated in an interview with Al Jazeera, “we recognize the NTC as the only legitimate representative of the Libyan people, and believe that meetings and contacts with the Tripoli regime must be coordinated by the United Nations. This is our position and our hope is obviously for a political solution without Gaddafi”.
