British Prime Minister, David Cameron has invited leaders of the Benghazi-based Libyan opposition to open formal offices in London. He made the announcement following talks with Mustafa Abdul Jalil, chairman of the National Transitional Council in the British capital on Thursday.
The London office space will be opened by Jalil in a move which plans to show support of Libyan rebels.
David Cameron said:
“These steps continue our very clear intention to work with the council to ensure Libya has a safe and stable future, free from the tyranny of the Gaddafi regime.”
He added that the UK presence in Benghazi, Libya’s rebel stronghold would also be boosted, and that Britain will supply police officers there with uniforms and body armour.
