LONDON - Any proposed ceasefire in Libya must meet the conditions set out by the United Nations, Britain's Foreign Secretary William Hague said on Monday.

"Anything short of this would be a betrayal of the people of Libya and would play into the hands of the regime which has announced two meaningless ceasefires since the fighting began without its vicious military campaign missing a single beat," Hague said at a press conference with Italian Foreign Minister Franco Frattini.
Hague and Frattini both said that Gadaffi must leave power.
