TRIPOLI - Libya's government said on Monday it had held talks with US officials and welcomed discussions but only without preconditions.

A US State Department official said that at the meeting American officials gave representatives of Muammar Gaddafi a "clear and firm" message that the Libyan leader had to go.

"We support any dialogue, any peace initiative as long as they don't decide Libya's future from without, they decide it from within," Libyan government spokesman Ibrahim Moussa told journalist in Tripoli.

"Any dialogue with the French, Americans, British is welcome. We are prepared to talk," he said.
