UNITED NATIONS - Libya has appointed former foreign minister Ali Abdussalam Treki as its UN envoy in New York, replacing an ambassador who renounced the Libyan leadership, the United Nations said on Friday.

"The Secretary-General (Ban Ki-moon) has received correspondence from the Libyan authorities," said UN spokesman Martin Nesirky. "That correspondence names Dr. Treki as the person they wish to have as the permanent representative of their country."

It is not clear whether Treki, one of Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi's most senior foreign policy advisers and a former president of the UN General Assembly, will ever take up the post as Libyan ambassador to the United Nations.
