LISBON, Sept 8 (Reuters) - NATO will continue its mission in Libya as long as any threat remains to the population from forces loyal to Muammar Gaddafi, the head of the western alliance said on Thursday.

NATO's Secretary-General Anders Fogh Rasmussen told reporters in Lisbon that after the threat is gone, the alliance's role will be a supporting one.

"NATO and our partners will continue the mission as long as the threat remains, but not a minute longer," he said. "Gaddafi and the remains of his machine must realize that there is nothing to be gained from more fighting."
