Poland welcomes end of Gaddafi's rule in Libya: spokesman


10:15, August 23, 2011

WARSAW, Aug. 22 (Xinhua) -- Poland welcomed the end of Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi's 42-year rule in Libya, Foreign Ministry spokesperson Marcin Bosacki said on Monday.

Poland was ready to help the Libyan people rebuild their country, Bosacki said in a press release.

Poland congratulated the Libyan people and the National Transitional Council on their victory over Gaddafi's regime, the ministry said.

The Foreign Ministry stressed that Poland from the very beginning had supported strivings of the Libyan people, adding that Poland was ready now to help them rebuild Libya.

The Polish Foreign Ministry expressed the conviction that soon Gaddafi and his close aids would be brought before a court in Libya or the International Criminal Court in The Hague.

Protests against Gaddafi erupted in February this year and led to a civil war-like situation between rebel groups based in the eastern part of the country and forces loyal to Gaddafi based in the west.

Libyan rebel forces took control of most of Tripoli on Sunday night and were still clearing up the remnants of Gaddafi's forces, while Gaddafi's whereabouts remained unknown.
