Libya - African Roadmap to Peace

Yesterday night, the African Union presented a roadmap for peace in Libya. Several African presidents and other high-ranking officials therefore met with Colonel Gadafi in Tripolis. What makes the difference between Nato and African positions on the issue of Libya is that any demand for Gadafi's resignation has been omitted. Facing the fact that Gadafi earlier sponsored African governments with Libya's oil revenues, especially when it came to the issue of a Panafrican government to be established under Gadafi's probable leadership, that roadmap simply looks like just another effort of the Gadafi clan to cling to power.

الوفد الأفريقي التقى القذافي في طرابلس
African delegation of [encouragement for] Gadafi in Tripolis:

المجلس الانتقالي: مبادرة الاتحاد الأفريقي لا تتضمن رحيل القذافي و أبنائه عن المشهد الليبي
The [Libyan] council of transition says that the initiative of the African Union does not imply the emigration of Gadafi and his sons from the Libyan scene.
