LONDON - Qatar's Prime Minister urged Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi on Tuesday to step down to halt bloodshed and said that he might only have a few days to negotiate an exit.

"We urge Gaddafi and his people to leave," Sheikh Hamad bin Jassim al-Thani told a news conference.

"I think this is the only solution to sort this problem as soon as possible. Right now we don't see any indication of that. But this hope which we offer now might not be on the table after a few days. I'm not warning anybody here, but I am trying to stop the bloodshed as soon as possible," he added.

British Foreign Secretary said an international meeting on Libya had not discussed arming Libya's rebels.
