DUBAI - The United Arab Emirates, which has been mostly silent during a six-month rebellion against Muammar Gaddafi, congratulated Libyan rebels on their move into Tripoli on Monday.

"Sheikh Mohammed praised the wisdom shown by (rebel Transitional National Council chief) Mustafa Abdul Jalil when dealing with various developments in the Libyan front," state news agency WAM said a statement, referring to Abu Dhabi Crown Prince Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed.

Abu Dhabi recognized the rebel council as the representative of the Libyan people in June but has not made significant announcements on the uprising since.
