Saif al-Islam Slams French Support for Libyan Counterrevolutionaries

Son of Gaddafi slams French support to Libya rebels

ALGIERS, July 11 (Xinhua) -- Libyan government leader Muammar Gaddafi's second-oldest son Seif al-Islam condemned the support of France to Libyan rebels in an interview with Algerian El Khabar newspaper on its Monday issue.

Seif said that the true talks are being set by the Libyan government with France, rather than with the rebels' National Transitional Council (NTC), said the report.

He mentioned that the Libyan government wants to organize elections under the supervision of international observers to form a national unity government and draft a new constitution, yet the rebels still reject such a process just because the Libyan government has not reached an agreement with Paris, the report added.

The son of Libyan leader, in the interview, welcomed the mediation of Algeria to settle the conflict in Libya, saying the neighboring country has always played the role of unification.
