Greek PM attends conference on Libya

Greek prime minister George Papandreou will be in Paris on Thursday for the "Friends of Libya" conference that will bring together senior officials from some 60 countries and international organisations to discuss Libya's transition to democratic rule in the post-Gaddaffi era that is being convened by French President Nicholas Sarkozy. The conference, to be co-hosted by Sarkozy and British prime minister David Cameron, seeks to secure financial and diplomatic support for the revolutionary regime in Libya, and is expected to be briefed by the head of Libya's National Transitional Council, Mustafa Abdel Jalil, on the NTC's immediate needs and plans. Another key issue to be discussed in Paris will be a peacekeeping presence in Libya. Addressing a Cabinet meeting on Wednesday, Papandreou said Greece supports the democratic transition of Libya and its stability and economic growth and boost its relations with Libya and with the other countries of North Africa and the Middle East.
