Clinton warns from allowing Qaddafi to remain in power.

US Secretary of Foreign Affairs Hillary Clinton

warned here that allowing Libyan leader Muammar Al-Qaddafi to remain in power

would be counterproductive to the revolutions in Egypt and Tunisia.

She said in a televised program show before concluding her visit to the

country that ousting Qaddafi was very important for the security of both

nations due to the Libyan leader's irrational and outbursts nature towards his

own people and neighboring countries.

However, the US official noted that even with the ousting of Qaddafi the

situation would remain vague in Libya and only the future would tell how the

Libyan situation might be.

She lauded the UNSC's steps towards the situation in Libya, noting that the

US was eager to be part of a unified international move against the Libyan

regime and not take individual steps in regards to the situation unless the

situation threaten US national security and interests.

The US attitude in regards to Qaddafi was unbent and clear, stated

Secretary Clinton, adding that the US, along with international partners,

would be cooperating on the issue to oust Qaddafi.
