UNITED NATIONS - Libya's de facto Prime Minister Mahmoud Jibril told the United Nations on Saturday his country has been reborn after toppling Muammar Gaddafi and appealed for the release of remaining frozen Libyan assets.

"A new Libya is coming to life," he said in the first appearance by Libya's new leadership at the United Nations.

He recalled how Gaddafi had stood at the same podium two years ago and tossed a copy of the UN charter over his shoulder as he accused big powers of betraying its principles.

Jibril, in a business suit and tie, cut a very different figure from the deposed Libyan ruler who appeared at the United Nations in 2009 in a copper-colored robe to denounce the West in what Jibril called "a pathetic, theatrical move."
