MADRID - Madrid has not changed its stance on Libya's rebels, which is that the Transitional National Council is an "official negotiating counterparty", a source at the foreign ministry told Reuters on Thursday.

Spanish government representatives and diplomats have met with rebel council over recent weeks. "We still have an embassy in Tripoli," the foreign ministry source said.

Earlier on Thursday a Libyan rebel spokesman said that Denmark, Spain and the Netherlands had joined Italy and France in recognizing the TNC rebels fighting to overthrow Muammar Gaddafi.
