SOSNOVY BOR, Russia - Russian President Dmitry Medvedev on Wednesday called on Muammar Gaddafi and Libya's rebels to stop fighting and sit down for talks.

"We want the Libyans to come to an agreement among themselves," Medvedev said after talks with North Korean leader Kim Jong-il at a Siberian military base.

"We would like (the fighting) to stop as soon as possible and for them to sit down at the negotiating table and reach an agreement on Libya's future."

Medvedev also suggested Moscow could recognize the rebels as Libya's formal government if they can unite the country.
