BEIJING - China will recognize Libya's National Transitional Council as the country's legitimate government "when conditions are ripe", a Foreign Ministry spokeswoman said on Tuesday, without elaborating.

China has been in close contact with the NTC and supports its role in Libya, spokeswoman Jiang Yu told a regular news briefing.

China has not joined Western powers in formally recognizing the NTC as the legitimate authority in Libya, but has acknowledged its "important role" after Muammar Gaddafi's ousting.
