The chairman of the rebel National Libya Council said to Al-Jazerra TV on Thursday that the body has not been reached out by anyone regarding a plan put forward by Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez to peacefully end the crisis in Libya.

"No one had contacted us regarding Venezuela's proposal to resolve the Libyan crisis," Mustafa Abdel Jali told the Doha-based TV. Abdel Jali, a former justice minister who heads the opposition body which lead rebels who are reportedly controlling the east of Libya, rejected any talks with Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi. The TV said Venezuela, a close friend to Libya, is still in contact with Arab and non-Arab countries to form a committee which would head for Libya to act as a conciliator between the Libyan government and rebels.

The Arab League said Chave's plan is still under consideration.
