Libya ready to forgive Gaddafi fighters: NTC

2011-12-10 14:00
Tripoli - Libya's new rulers are ready to forgive the forces of slain leader Muammar Gaddafi who battled rebels trying to topple his autocratic regime, National Transition Council chief Mustafa Abdel Jalil said on Saturday.

"In Libya we are able to absorb all. Libya is for all," Abdel Jalil said in Tripoli as he launched a national reconciliation conference organised by the NTC.

"Despite what the army of the oppressor did to our cities and our villages, our brothers who fought against the rebels as the army of Gaddafi [did], we are ready to forgive them," he said.

"We are able to forgive and tolerate," he added.

The conference, the first of its kind since the NTC on October 23 declared the total liberation of Libya, was attended by delegates from the major Libyan tribes and ethnic groups, as well as from Qatar and Tunisia.
