BRUSSELS - Libyan rebels have held no negotiations so far with leader Muammar Gaddafi's regime on a solution to their five-month conflict, a senior rebel official said on Wednesday.

"All this talk about negotiations taking place between the regime and the TNC (rebel council) are totally false claims," Mahmoud Jebril, a senior member of the rebels' council based in Benghazi, told reporters in Brussels.

"There were no negotiations taking place in the past and there are no negotiations taking place right now. There are ideas flying in the air from one capital to another, but no coherent, comprehensive initiative has so far put on the table."

Jebril, in Brussels to meet NATO and European Union officials, was responding to a question about Tuesday's comments by the French government that a political solution was taking shape in Libya.
