ALGIERS - Libya's foreign ministry said on Wednesday a French suggestion that Western powers could arm Libyan rebels violated United Nations resolutions and was tantamount to aiding "terrorists."

"Providing military assistance to armed gangs is contrary to Security Council resolutions, and is in support of terrorism as it has been proven that the armed gangs in Benghazi belong to al Qaida and other terrorist groups," said a foreign ministry statement carried by Libya's official Jana news agency.

French Foreign Minister Alain Juppe said on Tuesday that France was ready to discuss with its partners the possibility of arming the rebels.
