TRIPOLI - Libyan Foreign Minister Abdelati Obeidi is heading to Ethiopia's capital to discuss a peace plan with the African Union, a spokesman for Muammar Gaddafi's government said late on Sunday.

Libya's government accepted a peace proposal put forward by the Addis Ababa-based AU earlier this month, but the rebels immediately rejected the plan as it did not provide for Gaddafi's removal.

The United States, Britain and France also say their month-old air campaign will not end unless Gaddafi leaves power. Mussa Ibrahim said Morocco had been involved in peace efforts and Gaddafi's government was also in contact with Russia, Greece, Turkey and Latin American governments in a bid to agree a peace plan.
