Clinton, Sarkozy talks ahead of Libya meet

Latest News / PARIS – US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton held talks Thursday with French President Nicolas Sarkozy ahead of a Paris conference on Libya’s post-Moamer Kadhafi future, AFP reporters saw.


Clinton met Sarkozy after with Turkish Foreign Minister Ahmet Davutoglu in the run-up to the meeting by representatives of some 60 countries on financial and diplomatic support for Libya’s fledgling revolutionary regime.


The rebel National Transitional Council (NTC) scored a victory ahead of the “Friends of Libya” conference when neighbouring Algeria said it would recognise its rule and deny fugitive Kadhafi a possible escape route.


This came as Russia, which opposed NATO’s military intervention on behalf of the rebels, also recognised the NTC as Libya’s “ruling authority”, and France unblocked more than two billion dollars in frozen Libyan assets.


Following a six-month revolt, the NTC rebels are fighting to wipe out the last pockets of resistance from Kadhafi loyalists.


Officials in the US, which has recognised the NTC as Libya’s legitimate authority, say Thursday’s conference will assess the NTC’s needs in the areas of governance, security, humanitarian aid, and economic reconstruction.


Turkey is also among about 60 countries to have recognised the NTC.
