LUXEMBOURG - The European Union expressed concern on Monday over the spread of conventional weapons in Libya and called on the country's interim government to secure any stockpiles of chemical weapons.

After a meeting in Luxembourg, EU foreign ministers also urged Libya's National Transitional Council (NTC) to prevent any reprisals against people who had been loyal to deposed leader Muammar Gaddafi.

"The EU expressed particular concern at the dissemination of conventional weapons in Libya and invites competent national authorities and international organizations to continue to ensure the security of any chemical weapons stockpiles," the ministers said in a statement.
