As of Thursday Poland's ambassador in Libya Wojciech Bozek resides in Libya's second-largest metropolis Benghazi instead of the capital Tripoli, Polish Foreign Minister Radoslaw Sikorski said here on Thursday.

The embassy move was necessary as Poland saw no possibility for cooperation with Muammar Gaddafi and considered the country's Benghazi-seated Provisional Council as the only credible dialogue partner, Sikorski said after talks with visiting Algerian counterpart Murad Medelsi.

Sikorski added that Poland wished the Libyan conflict be resolved by political and not military means.

Medelsi supported Sikorski's view on Libya, stressing that the country is an important partner for Algeria. He also said military solutions in the Libyan conflict "should not be promoted".

"The Libyan people will strive for reconcilement and normalcy," Medelsi said.

Medelsi also stressed that Algeria had the "political will" to deepen relations with Poland.
