Libyan rebel officials in meeting at French foreign ministry
Libyan opposition officials were received Monday at the French foreign ministry as France resumed air patrols over the north African country, a ministry spokesman said.
"As you know we consider the CNT (transitional national council) to be a legitimate political interlocutor," the official told a press briefing.
France earlier this month became the first country to recognise Libya's opposition as the legitimate representatives of the Libyan people, officials in Paris said.
