British Prime Minister David Cameron and French President Nicholas Sarkozy will jointly host an international conference Thursday to build support for the new administration in Libya.
U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, and United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon, will also attend the "Friends of Libya" meeting. Russia and China, the Security Council permanent members who allowed military action for the protection of civilians, but did not back a similar resolution, are also sending representatives to the conference.
Libyan assets will also be unlocked at the earliest to provide funds for the National Transitional Council. The assets that were originally frozen will be discussed at the meeting. Reuters reports that Britain already has sent Libya the £1 billion Libyan dinar banknotes it had seized, with the approval of the U.N. Sanctions Committee.
Moammar Gaddafi's two sons have given "uncertain" and "conflicting" sigals, the Press Association reports.
While Saif al-Islam has vowed to fight on, his brother Saadi Gaddafi is claimed the NTC's authorisation to negotiate an end to the bloodshed.
The Commons Foreign Affairs Select Committee has again called on Gaddafi "to accept the inevitable" and surrender.
