ANKARA - Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi should quit in order to allow a peaceful transition of power, Turkey's Foreign Minister Ahmet Davutoglu said on Monday, standing alongside the head of Libya's revolutionary movement.

A major Muslim partner in NATO, Turkey earlier this month proposed a timetable for a ceasefire that could allow a political transition to take place.

"During this transition process a ceasefire should be established and Gaddafi should leave the leadership," Davutoglu told a joint news conference with Mustafa Abdul Jaleel, head of the Libyan national transitional council.

Davutoglu said the council is "a legal and credible representative of the Libyan people".
