Kadhafi not prepared to leave Libya: S.African presidency

Libyan leader Moamer Kadhafi is not prepared to leave his country, South African President Jacob Zuma’s office said Tuesday after the two leaders met in Tripoli.

“Colonel Kadhafi called for an end to the (NATO) bombings to enable a Libyan dialogue. He emphasised that he was not prepared to leave his country, despite the difficulties,” Zuma’s office said in a statement after his return from Tripoli.

“Colonel Kadhafi reiterated his agreement to a ceasefire and a dialogue of the Libyan people to find a political solution. He expressed his anger at the NATO bombings, which have claimed the lives of his son and grandchildren and continue to cause a destruction of property and disruption of life,” it said.
