ADDIS ABABA - Turkish Foreign Minister Ahmet Davutoglu said he would fly to the Libyan rebel capital of Benghazi on Tuesday.

Speaking in the Ethiopian capital, Addis Ababa, Davutoglu told reporters: "From here I will travel to Benghazi as foreign minister of Turkey but, at the same time, as chairman of the international Libya contact group."

"There is a beginning of a new era in Libya for a future, democratic, united Libya. What we always defended as Turkey was a new Libya based on the aspirations of the people of Libya without being divided and without there being a chaotic situation," he said at the African Union's headquarters where an emergency meeting on Libya had just begun.
