Hillary Clinton to attend Libya Contact Group meeting


08:54, August 30, 2011

WASHINGTON, Aug. 29 (Xinhua) -- U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton will attend a senior-level meeting of the Contact Group on Libya slated for Thursday in Paris, which seeks to offer more financial and political support for the opposition, the State Department said on Monday.

"The Paris meeting will build on the productive Libya Contact Group meeting in Istanbul on Aug. 25 and will provide the international community with an opportunity to further coordinate our financial and political support for the TNC (Transitional National Council)," department spokeswoman Victoria Nuland said.

Rebel troops under TNC are continuing their man hunt for Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi after they captured his stronghold in Tripoli last Tuesday.

"The days and weeks ahead will be critical for the Libyan people, and the United States and its partners will continue to move quickly and decisively to help the TNC and address the needs of the Libyan people," Nuland said in a statement.
