TRIPOLI - Libya's prime minister said on Thursday the only way to reach a peaceful resolution of the conflict in Libya was for the NATO-led alliance to stop its bombing campaign.

"We are calling for peace and extending our hand for peace," Libyan Prime Minister Al-Baghdadi Ali Al-Mahmoudi told a news conference in Tripoli. "But before peace NATO should stop bombing."

Asked about a statement by Saif al-Islam to an Italian newspaper that his father Muammar Gaddafi would step down if he lost an election, Mahmoudi told a news conference: "I would like to correct [that] and say that the leader of the revolution is not concerned by any referendum."
