12th April 2011, Comments 0 comments

Libyan former foreign minister Mussa Kussa is leaving Britain on Tuesday to travel to Qatar for talks ahead of a meeting there of an international contact group on Libya, the Foreign Office said.

"We understand that he is travelling today to Doha to meet with the Qatari government and a range of other Libyan representatives to offer insights in advance of the contact group meeting," a Foreign Office spokeswoman said.

She declined to give any more details on his plans, including whether he had already left Britain, saying: "Mussa Kussa is a free individual who can travel to and from the UK as he wishes."

Kussa arrived in Britain unexpectedly on March 30 and immediately quit his post as foreign minister in Moamer Kadhafi's regime.
