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.

"There should be no ceasefire that does not meet the conditions of UN security council resolutions 1970 and 1973 in full, and it is not acceptable for those representing the opposition in Libya, including the Interim National Council," he said.

"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.
