Former Jordanian Foreign Minister, Abdel Ilah Al-Khatib, spoke to reporters in New York on Friday as the uprising to remove Libyan leader Muammar Qhadafi continued.

Describing his mission as “complex’, Mr. Al-Khatib said he will meet with all sides in the Libyan crisis in order to understand the situation.

“I start my mission hoping that this effort that I undertake on behalf of the international community will succeed in stopping the killings and ending the suffering of the civilian population and addressing their humanitarian needs and preserving the unity of the Libyan people and the territorial integrity of their homeland. Achieving these goals is essential for enabling the Libyan people to choose their future and determine their destiny.”
