ISTANBUL - An international Libya contact group meeting will recognize the Benghazi-based opposition council as the representative of the Libyan people, leaving Muammar Gaddafi no option but to step down, Italy's Foreign Minister Franco Frattini said on Friday.

Speaking to journalists on the sidelines of the Istanbul meeting, Frattini said the UN Secretary-General's special envoy to Libya, Abdul Elah Al-Khatib, will be authorized to present terms for Gaddafi to leave power, in a political package that will include a ceasefire to halt fighting in the civil war.
