10th March 2011, Comments 0 comments

France and Britain on Thursday agreed that Libya strongman Moamer Kadhafi "must go" and called on the EU to consider the country's rebel national council a valid political interlocutor, Sarkozy's office said.

"To stop further suffering of the Libyan people, Muammar Gaddafi and his clique should leave," French President Nicolas Sarkozy and British Prime Minister David Cameron said in a joint letter to European Union president Herman Von Rompuy.

"We support the efforts of the Libyan Interim Transitional National Council to prepare for a representative and accountable government.

"We should send the clear political signal that we consider the Council to be valid political interlocutors, and an important voice for the Libyan people in this phase," they said.
