SA, UK agree Gaddafi must go

2011-07-18 10:55

British Prime Minister David Cameron and President Jacob Zuma have agreed that Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi must go.

Cameron, who is on a working visit to South Africa, told reporters in Pretoria today that he and Zuma believed Gaddafi needed to step down from power.

Zuma said: “What happens to Gaddafi must be decided by the Libyan people. You need to negotiate how, why and where he must go.”

He said the manner of Gaddafi’s departure was the critical difference between the United Kingdom and South Africa.

Cameron, however, said both men agreed peace was needed in Libya, and that Gaddafi needed to stop his attacks on his own citizens.
