Gaddafi regime accepts African Union peace plan

11 April 2011 No Comment

THE regime of Libya’s Muammar Gaddafi has accepted an African Union peace plan designed to end the current conflict, South African President Jacob Zuma said from Tripoli on Sunday.

Gaddafi’s delegation had accepted the AU’s proposals, details of which would be set out in a statement later, Mr Zuma added.

While other commitments meant he had to leave Libya Sunday evening, the other members of the African Union delegation would be staying over in Tripoli overnight before travelling west to rebel-held Benghazi, he continued.

There they would put the AU plan, which involves an immediate ceasefire, to the opposition leaders. So far, the leaders of the uprising have rejected any ceasefire plan which involves leaving either Gaddafi or his sons in power.

As well as Mr Zuma, the AU delegation includes three other African leaders: Mali’s Amadou Toumani Toure, Mohamed Ould Abdel Aziz of Mauritania and Congo’s Denis Sassou Nguesso of Congo. Ugandan Foreign Minister Henry Oryem Okello, representing President Yoweri Museveni, completes the AU team.

Earlier on Sunday, the African Union mediators joined Muammar Gaddafi for a photocall outside his Bedouin tent in his Bab al-Aziziya compound in the capital.
