Algeria to recognise new Libyan government
Algiers: Algeria says it will officially recognise the revolutionary forces` National Transitional Council as being in control of Libya once it forms a new government.
Algeria was close to deposed Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi and has been a lone holdout among Arab countries in recognising the council.
Algerian Foreign Minister Mourad Medelci said late Sunday at a press conference with his Malian counterpart that he was awaiting the formation of a government "representing Libyans of all tendencies”.
Relations between the former rebels, who now control all but three cities in the oil-rich North African nation, have been strained with Algeria, especially after it gave refuge to Gaddafi`s wife, daughter and two of his sons.
Medelci added that contacts have improved between the two countries over the last two weeks.
