The international contact group of the main diplomatic players in the Libya crisis is eyeing a conditional ceasefire in the conflict, French Foreign Minister Alain Juppe said on Wednesday.

"We want to achieve a ceasefire but on condition it's a real ceasefire under real control, not just a halt to firing," he told a press conference at the end of a one-day meeting in the Qatari capital.

He said any ceasefire must comply with UN resolutions and entail the withdrawal of Libyan leader Moamer Kadhafi's forces from captured towns and a return to barracks.
